Pearl Jam Twenty, director Cameron Crowe's documentary on the band, will be screened in theaters around the world tonight for one night only, followed by select theaters for one week starting Friday. It will also be made available on Movies On Demand to tie in with the theatrical release, and the DVD will be out on October 25th.

The film tells the story of the band coming together and its first 20 years. Crowe says Martin Scorsese's documentary on Bob Dylan, No Direction Home, was a big influence on him making this film. "I love the way Scorsese chose the chunk that he chose, examined the roots and showed how the music was born... If we can make a movie that let's you feel the way a Pearl Jam concert or record lets you feel then we're in good shape."

Singer Eddie Vedder says, "It's just music...[but] to have it turn into this other thing, this kind of monument in a way, it's really something."

The film's soundtrack, PJ 20, featuring 29 songs spread over two discs, is also being released today

An L.A. judge has issued a temporary restraining order barring a neighbor of Zakk Wylde's from coming within 100 yards of him or his family. TMZ cites court documents in reporting that the Black Label Society guitarist claims to be "terrified" of the 20-year-old, who recently left a "sacrifice" at his home. A call to police after a recent incident resulted in a mental evaluation of the neighbor, who was "deemed mentally ill" and diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder.

A source tells us that Wylde had given the neighbor a signature guitar as a gift at one point. The two are set to appear in court on Friday.

Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows says they plan to shoot a video for "Buried Alive," which will be their next single. They spoke to Rob Zombie about directing it, but he's working on his next film, The Lords of Salem, so they'll have to look elsewhere.
