If you thought 2020 was a big year for Machine Gun Kelly, just wait until you see what 2021 has in store. This week, the singer and actor will be releasing Downfalls High, a new movie described as “a first of its kind musical experience.” Part music video, part 1980s homage, part feature film, Machine Gun Kelly’s Downfalls High movie is expected to be one of the biggest musical events of the month — and for MGK and MOD SUN fans, the year.
Given the unprecedented nature of the event, fans probably have a few questions about how to watch Downfalls High. Is Downfalls High going to be on Netflix? Where can I watch Downfalls High? Consider this your one-stop Downfalls High shop!
WHAT IS THE DOWNFALLS HIGH MOVIE?
Downfalls High is a new movie from Machine Gun Kelly and MOD SUN that tells the story of a budding high school relationship through the artist’s recent album “Tickets to My Downfall.” Filmed in about a week, the film follows a teenager named Phoenix (Chase “Lil Huddy” Hudson) and his girlfriend (Sydney Sweeney) as they navigate the ups and downs of high school life.
In an October 2020 interview with NME, Machine Gun Kelly described Downfalls High as a “pop-punk Grease,” and explained that the project was filmed over four days in the fall. “It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories,” he said. “It focuses on other characters, and then me and [Travis Barker] are just the narrators. It’s an interesting concept because it hasn’t been done for an album ever, maybe outside of like Pink Floyd’s The Wall.”
WHAT IS THE DOWNFALLS HIGH RELEASE DATE?
Machine Gun Kelly’s directorial debut premieres tomorrow, Friday, January 15, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
