Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Documentary Is Finally Here
The long-awaited documentary about the best-selling and most influential extreme sports video game series Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater “Pretending I’m a Superman” is finally here. The film from the award-winning Swedish director Ludvig Gür and well-acclaimed videogame producer Ralph D’Amato, is about the skateboarding industry that was going through a major crisis in the early 90s. However, the X-Games galvanized the extreme sport and made skating popular than ever before together with the debut of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game itself which sold 9 million copies upon release and changed the skateboarding scene forever.
The man, the myth, the legend Tony Hawk who landed the 900 on a vert ramp at the 1991 X-games is still one of the best professional skateboarders alive who helped the majority of the pro skaters in the game. According to Andrew Reynolds who was in the THPS game franchise he made $150,000 from the game and it’s good to know that Tony Hawk backed them up because the culture of skateboarding has so many challenges from the establishment, authorities, and society at large.
Pretending I'm a Superman, The Tony Hawk Video Game Story is now available through video on demand and streaming on iTunes, Youtube, Amazon Prime Video, and other platforms according to thpsfilm.com site.
