‘CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT’ – DOCUMENTARY

Another day, another great Sport documentary trailer.

This time, take a look at ‘China Heavyweight’, the new Boxing doc from ‘Up The Yangtze’ director, Yung Chang.

It follows kids from China’s rural peasant towns as they get selected and nurtured toward Olympic greatness by coach Qi Moxiang.

It looks like one hell of a journey, but even in this brief trailer you can see the determination and desire amongst these youngsters to break out from their hometowns and live a life of greater purpose.

After a showing at Sundance in January, the documentary will be released later this year into cinemas.

‘BONES BRIGADE’ TRAILER RELEASED

Check out the trailer for forthcoming Stacy Peralta skateboard doc ‘Bones Brigade’.

The group were pretty much the best skaters in the world bar none through the 1980’s.  Steve Caballero, Tony Hawk, Eric Sanderson, Steve Rocco and Rodney Mullen (plus many more) have all skated for the Bones Brigade team at one point or another.

These guys took a passion and a way of having fun, and turned it into an industry and a competitive art.

I can’t wait for this…

TRAILER RELEASED FOR ‘PROMETHEUS’

Billed as a sort of ‘prequel’ to the Alien series, this Ridley Scott directed sic-fi blockbuster, starring Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pierce, Idris Elba and Noomi Rapace is due for release in UK cinemas in June 2012.

The discovery of a starmap sends a crew of explorers  skywards on a scientific expedition to discover the origins of mankind.  Naturally, they stumble upon an advanced civilisation of extra-terrestrial lifeforms.

It’s Ridley Scott, remember, so taking the trailer fullscreen is most definitely recommended.
