LONDON (Hollywood Reporter) - "Iron Maiden: Flight 666," the first feature documentary on the British heavy metal band, will receive a spring release on home turf via European digital cinema provider Arts Alliance Media.

The documentary details the story of the first leg of the band's 2008 tour and is billed as an "intimate and revealing portrait" of the rockers.

In 45 days the band played in Asia, Australia and North, Central and South America, with lead singer Bruce Dickinson piloting a customized jet.

AAM will distribute the documentary to selected U.K. cinemas beginning April 21 in association with the band itself, EMI Records and Universal in the U.S.
