"We're still filming," Followill tells Spinner. "It's going to be like 'Lord of the Rings,' but it'll be 'Lord of the Kings.' It's going to be a trilogy for sure."
Even though they weren't there to see the band play, throngs of enthusiastic Kings of Leon fans filled the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, which made Followill feel like he was supposed to be performing at the festival instead of watching a movie. "We had no idea it was going to be anything like this," he says. "It's like a show rather than a movie premiere, but I'm pretty stoked."
Now, Followill assures fans that the band will release the documentary at some point as well as present it in other theaters worldwide. "Fortunately for us, we're popular outside of America as well," he says. "We'll definitely have it come out to where our fans get to see it."
'Talihina Sky,' directed by Stephen Miller, not only showed the Followills living the rock-star dream but also delves in to their family lives and, more importantly, their experiences growing up as Pentecostal Christians. Holding nothing back, Nathan is excited for people to see who they really are.
"We're pretty open with our fans," he said. "They know what to expect, but I think there are some things in the film that they're not ready for. But we're honest and we're open, and the fact that we can expose ourselves that much, especially at the level we're at now, it'll be interesting to see how they like the film."
As open as the band was in the film, there was one thing that Followill did realize he did a little too much on camera. "I curse way, way, way too much on this," he admits. "I'm kind of embarrassed for my dad to see it. That's all pretty horrible, but we'll see how it goes. I don't think he'll be too upset."
Kings of Leon are on tour this summer with Band of Horses.
