Santa Monica, CA – September 25, 2014 – Red Bull Media House in association with Freeride Entertainment announced it will release a new motorcycle documentary “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” in theaters nationwide on November 7th. From director Dana Brown (“Step Into Liquid,” “Dust to Glory”), the film is a follow-up to the 1971 Academy Award®-nominated documentary, “On Any Sunday”, directed by his father, Bruce Brown. The 90-minute documentary film features today’s powered two-wheel superstars including MotoGP riders Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa, action sports superstar Travis Pastrana, freestyle motocross pioneer Robbie Maddison, Pikes Peak International Hill Climb motorcycle champ Carlin Dunne, women’s motocross champ Ashley Fiolek, motocross legend Doug Henry, custom motorcycle designer and former racer Roland Sands and one of the most successful riders in supercross history, James Stewart.
The film will release nationally throughout the major theatrical chains including Regal Entertainment, AMC Theatres, Cinemark and Carmike Cinemas on November 7th and is available for distribution worldwide. For showtimes and locations, visit www.onanysundayfilm.com. “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” will make its world premiere on September 26th at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the official trailer was released today. Dolby, KTM and Skullcandy are official partners of the film.
“This is the first time a feature film from Red Bull Media House will have national theatrical distribution in the United States,” said Werner Brell, Managing Director of Red Bull Media House North America. “Releasing the film nationally gives us the opportunity to reach new audiences and excite those who ride, where they ride.”
When “On Any Sunday” premiered in 1971, it wasn’t just any movie. Directed by Bruce Brown – who also helmed surfing classic “The Endless Summer” – this insider look at motorcycle culture reached a wide audience that was fascinated by the heartfelt stories of the men behind the bikes, earning an Academy Award®-nomination for Best Documentary Feature.
Four decades later, “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” shows that the passion for riding motorcycles is as strong as ever. Dana Brown directs this modern take on the original, capturing what it means to ride in the United States and abroad. The first feature film from Red Bull Media House shot entirely in 4K Ultra HD, the action and emotion are breathtaking: phenomenal athletes, revolutionary innovators, Hollywood stars and even visionaries who use motorcycles to save lives. “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” is an exploration into the pursuit of excitement, passion and life in the world of motorcycle riding.
“When Red Bull Media House was looking to do a feature film on motorcycle riding, the first people we wanted to work with were the Browns,” commented Scott Bradfield, Head of Production and Development for Red Bull Media House North America. “The storytelling legacy that Dana Brown brings to why people ride is apparent in every aspect of the riders he documents in ‘On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter.’”
Director Dana Brown suggests that the timing was just right for a follow-up to his father Bruce Brown’s film, “On Any Sunday”: “Bikes are better, athletes have progressed, and there are so many disciplines now. In fact, we couldn’t possibly do justice to all of them in this 90-minute movie. We set out to show a cross- section of motorcycling today, and here’s hoping we’ve succeeded.”
The film will be premiered in the Dolby Atmos® multidimensional sound experience at the Dolby Theatre® in Hollywood on Wednesday, October 22 where part of Hollywood Blvd. will be shut down for a one-of-a-kind motorcycle cruise-in. Dolby Atmos makes it easy for filmmakers to place or move specific sounds anywhere in the movie theatre, including overhead.
