HBO has announced the premiere dates for Phoenix Rising, the new documentary in which Evan Rachel Wood discusses the abuse allegations she made against Marilyn Manson. The first part, subtitled Don’t Fall, airs on Tuesday, March 15 at 9 p.m. Eastern; the second part, called Stand Up, airs the following day at the same time. The full film will be available to stream on HBO Max beginning March 15. Find a trailer for the documentary below.
In the new trailer, Wood says, “I’m here today to talk about Brian Warner also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.” The clip includes interviews with Wood’s mother and brother, as well as footage of Wood with a support group and testifying in front of lawmakers.
Phoenix Rising: Don’t Fall premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. In the film, Wood alleges that Manson “essentially raped” her during the filming of the music video for Manson’s 2007 single “Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand).”
Phoenix Rising is directed by Amy Berg. A press release from HBO notes that the network “is partnering with non-profit organizations, including RAINN, to help empower, educate, and provide resources and action opportunities for all audiences.”
