Great films about motorcycling are few and far between. Sure, moto film history has been graced by legendary fiction (Easy Rider) and gripping documentary (Faster), but beyond a tiny handful of masterpieces, it seems that totally kickass motorcycle flicks are pretty much a lost cause.
And then there's this gem of a trailer that teases the sequel to Bruce Brown's seminal 1971 documentary On Any Sunday. The original documentary was game changing and set the bar high (Roger Ebert said it "does for motorcycling racing what Endless Summer did for surfing"), but the fact that the sequel was directed by Bruce's son, Dana could very well pave the way for further awesomeness.
Financed by Red Bull and KTM, the flick embraces a broad spectrum of two-wheeled racing and its colorful array of personalities, from Marc Marquez and Travis Pastrana to James Stewart and Kenny Roberts. The photography-- at least from what you'll see in the 2-minute trailer-- is gorgeous, especially when viewed in the bandwith-hogging 4K Ultra HD format in which the movie is shot (though you'll need a 4K screen to fully exploit the hyper-realistic resolution).
We won't know for sure if On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter has what it takes to become a true legend, but we can't wait to judge for ourselves when it arrives in theaters this fall.
