Disney+ just released a huge line-up of content coming to the United States this summer including a fresh batch of weekly Disney+ Original Series episodes, a “New to Disney+” movie of the week, and curated seasonal favorites to relive again and again. One of the titles announced is the documentary feature film, “Stuntman” which arrives on Friday, July 23rd.
From executive producers Dwayne Johnson (“Jungle Cruise”) and Dany Garcia from Seven Bucks Productions, and directed by Kurt Mattila, “Stuntman” chronicles the highs and lows of veteran Hollywood stuntman, Eddie Braun as he attempts what many argue is the most dangerous stunt in cinematic history. Following in the footsteps of his childhood idol, Evel Knievel, Braun reflects on having survived multiple car crashes, explosions, and death defying leaps over the course of his 30+ year career in film and television. Now, in his mid-50s and contemplating retirement, Braun decides to cap off an extraordinary career by recreating Evel Knievel’s infamous unsuccessful Snake River Canyon rocket jump. In 2018, “Stuntman”made its world premiere at the LA Film Festival, taking home the Audience Award choice winner for Best Documentary Feature.
