Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk has released the first trailer for his upcoming documentary, Pretending I’m A Superman. The upcoming film will explore Hawk’s career and the impact he has had on the world of video games. Throughout the film, Hawk will debut archival footage featuring Skateboard legends such as Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Chad Muska and Rodney Mullen.
“Kids were into it, you know, because their parents hated it,” Hawk said about the sport and his iconic video game series, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
“I was a fading vert [vertical] skater, my income was getting cut in half every month, and so I started doing whatever I could,” Hawk said about his motivation to create the series.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater debuted in 1999 and more than 20 years later, Activision is preparing to re-release a remastered version of the game.
“It was nuts what that game did not just for skateboarding but for us as individuals,” Mullen said about the video game franchise.
Check out the trailer above. Pretending I’m A Superman will hit streaming platforms on August 18, 2020.
