UPDATE - 2/8@9:48AM: Confirmed via the Banger Films Facebook page (thanks RushFanForever:

... the Rush Doc is done and dusted. Look for some announcements and possibly a premiere in the Spring!!

----- snip -----

I've recently received information that the long-anticipated Rush documentary is finally finished and will be making its theatrical debut sometime this Spring. The word is that the band and their management have screened the entire film and given it the green light. The details of the theatrical release are still being worked out but it will most likely be a limited release of some kind at a film festival or festivals. It will also supposedly air on VH1 some time in the late Spring and be released on DVD later this year. In November I'd mentioned that the film would contain some pro-shot footage of the band with John Rutsey on drums, purportedly taken from a Canadian Bandstand gig that Rush played at Laura Secord High School in St. Catharines, ON in 1974. I've received separate confirmation that this is indeed the case and that about 2-3 minutes of surprisingly quality footage from this show will be included in the film. I'd also heard that a good bit of footage was cut for the theatrical release but that most of this would eventually make it to the DVD release as extras.
