Brad Pitt and director Mark Neale help tell the story of six of the ballsiest men on the planet who straddle 200 mph, gas-powered rockets to race their way to victory in MotoGP:
"Narrated by Brad Pitt, HITTING THE APEX is the inside story of six fighters – six of the fastest motorcycle racers of all time – and of the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport. It’s the story of what is at stake for all of them: all that can be won, and all that can be lost, when you go chasing glory at over two hundred miles an hour – on a motorcycle.
The film portrays the intense rivalry between riders, but also captures evidence of the strong bonds and camaraderie that can exist in top level professional sport: the extreme competition between Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa; the friendship between Rossi and rising star Marco Simoncelli. And the phenomenal rise of the young rookie Marc Marquez and his attempt to become the fastest and most brilliant rider of them all.
From director Mark Neale of FASTER and FASTEST, HITTING THE APEX takes us to the heart of this exhilarating sport at a time when the speeds have never been higher or the talent on the track more brilliant."
Hitting the Apex opens in the UK on September 2nd and Italy and Spain later that month. An American release has yet to be announced.
