Have you seen the trailer for the One Direction documentary, This is Us? Did you want there to be more shirtlessness? Did you want there to be more robots? Then we’re here to bring you a double-shot of good news. In a Twitter Q&A earlier today, director Morgan Spurlock — who once ate so much McDonald’s he became famous — gave more details about the film, which is being released in 3-D on Aug. 30.

To recap: The fivesome all care deeply about one another, all have great hair, and all treat Spurlock as if he were furniture. Will they be wearing shirts in the movie? They’re wild! Shirts are expensive. Music makes family. Who is Spurlock’s favorite guy? That’s one mystery he’ll never tell.

But really, the Q&A speaks for itself:

More shirtless moments than you can imagine, now how many of those make it into the final film we’ll have to wait and see – MS

@1dthisisus @morganspurlock @twitteruk #askmorgan1d3d do the boys ever film each other? Or do u not trust them with that responsibility…;P

#askmorgan1D3D What is the most beautiful thing about the boys? @1dthisisus — Iris♡ (@x3Irissx3) April 3, 2013



Well I know a lot of fans love those flowing locks, so I may have to plan some special “Hair-iel” shots for the film – MS

#AskMorgan1D3D @1dthisisus Please Answer. Are the boys obedient while filming or they kept on playing games?

They are free spirits, they do what they want, that’s what makes them who they are; but we’re all working hard to make a great movie – MS
