(December 29, 2011) – Metal Mulisha is proud to announce that ‘Black Friday,’ one of the industry’s most anticipated films, will be released on January 6th via iTunes and select retailers around the U.S. Starring the full Mulisha team, including founder Brian Deegan, Ronnie Faisst, Todd Potter, Wes Agee, Taka Higashino and Jacko Strong, ‘Black Friday’ takes viewers behind the scenes with the world’s most famous freestyle motocross team. From Deegan and Potter’s Temecula compounds to Danimal’s Domain and the outback of Australia, ‘Black Friday’ pulls out all the stops in an hour-long movie that celebrates riding on the edge and an adrenaline-filled lifestyle that Mulisha has been known for since 1999. ‘
Black Friday’ is the first movie release from Mulisha in more than four years. ‘Black Friday’ features amazing jump footage shot by director, Jay Schweitzer, from both aerial and ground viewpoints. Highlights include Wes Agee and Todd Potter’s world record 190-foot backflip, Brian Deegan’s fight against Dave Mirra at EllisMania 7, and Jimmy Fitzpatrick’s helicopter dive. The film also pays tribute to Mulisha’s fallen teammates, Jeff ‘Ox’ Kargola, who passed away earlier this year; and never-before-seen footage of team rider Jeremy Lusk, who died in 2009.
“Black Friday is another example that Mulisha is the greatest freestyle motocross team on the planet, hands down,” said Deegan. “We’re a tight group of guys who love to ride, compete and have fun every step of the way. This movie shows that we’re still willing to push the limits, whether on a dirtbike, rally car or in the ring.” The movie will be available on iTunes this December for $9.99. The following week, fans can purchase the DVD at selected retailers. For more info on Metal Mulisha fighters, news and appearances, visit www.metalmulisha.com or the Metal Mulusha Facebook page.
