The World’s Largest Action Sports Film Announces 2007 UK Tour
Prepare to charge into winter as Nissan Sports Adventure presents Warren Miller’s PLAYGROUND. The world’s largest annual action sports film will be hitting over 40 cinemas on a nationwide tour between November 2007 and January 2008 and will dazzle fans with electrifying winter sports footage projected in crystal clear digital format.
Heralding the start of winter for many sport enthusiasts, Warren Miller films attract a cult-like following to their one-off screenings, showcasing stunning global destinations from Sweden to Canada and Alaska to Japan. Warren Miller’s 2007 feature also exposes the world’s newest and most unlikely winter sports destination, Dubai.
This year’s invigorating action display includes a rare and insightful look into ski racing king and perceived industry bad boy, Bode Miller; a trip to Alaska’s untouched Chugach Range with X-Games Gold Medalists (and brothers), Zach and Reggie Crist; unbelievably deep powder in Utah and British Columbia; and astonishing aerial acrobatics from Sweden. Warren Miller’s PLAYGROUND also highlights the future of snowboarding in a segment from the youth-infused Burton Smalls Team where we are taught that size truly isn’t everything.
This year’s film is complimented with a high-energy soundtrack delivered on a state-of-the-art digital sound system and includes world renowned bands like the Beastie Boys, Maroon 5, Queens of the Stone Age among others.
Max Bervy, the film’s director and producer, says: “The Playground is a place where authority figures cease to exist, where fun and challenge are the only goals and creativity and freedom the only rules. This year we followed the leading athletes of the industry on a journey to a special place where anything is possible on the side of a snow covered mountain. Because, for more than half a century, we’ve found skiers and snowboarders in every corner of the globe … and we found them all in the same place, the Playground.”
PLAYGROUND is Warren Miller Entertainment’s 58th feature film, adding it to the legacy of Warren Miller’s pioneering leadership in action sports cinematography. The national tour of PLAYGROUND is presented by Nissan Sports Adventure and co-sponsored by The Independent, Ski Lake Tahoe, Corona Extra, World Ski, Columbia Sportswear, Zoom Airlines, Rossignol and the Ski Club of Great Britain.
