The film was released alongside a live album of the same name: A Cross the Universe.

Reception[edit]

Reception of the film has been positive.

Justine JC of Scene Crave said: "The cinematography is artistic and raw, yet deft, making the mess of a story line (well, lack there of…) strangely engaging. The film is literally an arbitrary compilation of the people and events involved in the band’s tour." [4]
