Tony Hawk video game documentary set for August release

While the remade version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 is set to launch in September, a documentary about the making of the original game is set to drop next month.

Pretending I’m Superman: The Tony Hawk Video Game Story will arrive on digital and video-on-demand platforms on August 18. The documentary features interviews with Tony Hawk and the developers and skaters who had a hand in making the classic game including Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska, and Jamie Thomas.

After the film was shown at the Mammoth Film Festival, it was acquired by Wood Entertainment for worldwide distribution.

"I’m really excited to partner with Wood Entertainment,” said the film’s director Ludvig Gür. “It’s been a long journey making the documentary and I’m stoked it will finally be released for skateboarding and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fans worldwide. The art form and video game had an enormous impact on Generation Y / Z and the story behind it is even more fascinating.”
