MotoGP movie "Faster" premieres at the Cannes Film Festival

Over the past two years, a documentary about the MotoGP World Championship has
been filmed at several GPs by a Hollywood production company. The movie,
"Faster", has finally been completed and had its international launch in Cannes
during the famous Festival this evening.

The screening took place at the Riviera 8 Theatre, however prior to that launch
a party was hosted at The Majestic Hotel. The high point of the evening besides
the film, was the arrival of the MotoGP stars, some on their race bikes, from
along La Croisette, the famous front beach boulevard in Cannes that is the
centre of attention during the Festival. The MotoGP riders involved were
Valentino Rossi (Honda / Italy), Olivier Jacque (Yamaha / France), Loris
Capirossi (Ducati / Italy), John Hopkins (Suzuki / USA), Colin Edwards (Aprilia
/ USA) Garry McCoy (Kawasaki/Australia) and Alex Hofmann (Kawasaki / Germany).

There was an additional surprise because the film, which is around 100 minutes
long, is narrated by the famous Scottish actor Ewan McGregor (Star Wars, Moulin
Rouge), and he too arrived at the launch riding a bike alongside the MotoGP
stars. McGregor who is a keen motorcycle enthusiast remarked, "This has been an
amazing event, I've never been to a premiere like this before! Nor have I ridden
a bike like I did today alongside the MotoGP riders, the guys are all reall
good fun."

Over 100 photographers awaited the riders' and McGregor's arrival as they rolled
up at the Majestic Hotel, with the racers showing off their skills to the
cameras. Later, regarding his narration of the film the Briton commented, "The
director Mark Neill called me up and showed me the movie while I was working in
the US, and I had never seen such a good motorcycling film. We met up soon after
in Alabama and put the voice on it. Unfortunately I can't make these guys' next
GP in Le Mans, however I hope to be able to attend a race at some time later on
in the year."

Valentino Rossi, who forms a big part of the film, was impressed by the scene,
"There's a fantastic atmosphere here. I think the film itself is great, I
enjoyed it a lot." Another of the riders to feature strongly in the picture is
young American, John Hopkins. The Californian 19 year-old said, "I have one more
year of experience since the film, and now I'm not just the young guy in the
movie, now I'm more mature and trying to make my place in the MotoGP scene."

I did a little bit of searching and found nothing about a release date. It was released in France for the festival and that was about it... hopefully it gets here soon

when it is released here, can someone make some kind of announcement about when and where to get it? That would be awsome.

Sweet, I'm actually going to Cannes in a few days for a wedding. Maybe I'll get a chance to see it if it's playing anywhere.

Email I got on 8/20. It's been so long I don't even remember signing up on some list for this.

Hello,

First of all, my apologies for the delay in sending out news. I will try to give you an update every month from now on.

There's a massive amount of interest in FASTER and everybody wants to know when they can see it or buy the DVD. We are planning to show it in cinemas in the US in the fall and will release it on DVD soon afterwards. It will be in cinemas in some other countries and on DVD everywhere, but we cannot give you exact dates yet. We are working on it and I will give you news as soon as I have it. We have a lot of offers but we're a small, independent production company not a Hollywood studio, and global distribution is a complicated business

I went to the British grand prix and I know that everyone inside MotoGP wants to see FASTER out there because bike racing is a great sport and it deserves to reach a much bigger audience, and this movie could help make that happen. Most of all, though, it is a sport that is already followed by millions of fans around the world like you - fans who have waited long enough for this film. We will get it to you as soon as we possibly can.

More new news next month.

Thanks for your support.

Mark Neale

FASTER Director

Thats a sweet vid. The end wheelie is awesome

We all undertake a modicum of risk everytime we thumb the starter-it's just inherent to the sport.

i odubt this will ever come out in the US, i'm sure they'll release a DVD/Cassette but never in the theaters not enough people would go. Now if they turned it into IMAX i think more people would come.

Suddenly, I feel inadequate as a rider.That vid took as long as it would probably take me to do on lap at RA!Just one more reason why I love moto GP...but I thought that new Honda was close to 1000cc's as opposed to the 500cc's they mentioned in the film I do know that the elite was 500 cc's but I don't think that is still the case.Anyone know for sure?

In Moto GP they still run 500CC two stokes, but the new technology now are the 4 stroke 1000CC machines.

Each company makes there own proto-type.

The honda is a V-5. 3 cylinders in the fron two in the back all on the same crank shaft.

Ground breaking shit. Amazes me

Just got this email tonight about FASTER. Maybe going to see this could be the last group ride this year


Hello,

We're making progress with our distribution plans and will have release dates very soon.

FASTER will be showing in cinemas in the United States and Canada before Christmas. Cinema releases also look likely in Japan, Australia, Britain, Spain and Italy - we don't know the dates yet but we will soon.

The DVD will be released in as many countries as possible early next year. Our foreign sales agents are working on this with distributors in different countries. We will give you the dates as soon as we have them. The DVD will also be available through this website, so everyone who wants a copy will be able to get one.

We wish this could all happen FASTER, but we're getting there.

More news soon.
