Fight for Space, Beach Boys and Casting JonBenet Trailer

There are so many great documentaries released each year, and it’s a shame that some don’t get seen by as many people as they should. Thankfully, streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, as well as other VOD services, have made it easier for audiences to see the docs that usually don’t get a wide release in theaters. This week, we have three very different documentaries about three very different subjects, and they all have new trailers.

First, there’s a documentary called Beach Boys: Making Pet Sounds, a chronicle of how the surf band made one of their most iconic albums. Then there’s Fight for Space, which takes a look at the space race of the 1960s and asks why our fascination with space and support of NASA have stopped in recent years. Finally, there’s the Sundance selected doc Casting JonBenet, which takes a unique look at the murder of young JonBenet Ramsey.
