“Nitro Circus 3D” Premieres in Hollywood

Posted on 30 June 2012 by admin

Official Trailer from Red Bull.

Nitro Circus 3D the movie premieres in Hollywood California. Who doesn’t love love watching “Fail” video clips and video of self inflicted pain…and remember this will be in glorious 3D! I havent’s seen the movie yet but this is one where you can probably expect character development, plot points and plain old story structure to go out the window. Action should look pretty cool in 3D. The film opens internationally on Aug. 8th 2012. The film was directed by Greg Godfrey and Jeremy Rawle and produced by Godfrey Entertainment, Red Bull Media House and Wasserman Media Group.

Red Bull’s involvement seems obvious because of the attached action stars but this could also serve as technical testing ground for Red Bulls upcoming Parkour film “Oliver Twist.”
More when I get it.
