Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Documentary Film Premieres This Month
Tony Hawk is the man, the myth, and the skateboard legend. The now 51-year-old retired skateboarder resides in Encinitas, CA with his family, where he travels, skates for leisure and speaks at different events. And fans of the star can now rejoice - as his skating documentary is set to premiere this month.
Here he is!
Take a long look, my friends. This is Mr. Tony Hawk, the coolest skateboarder ever.
Fancy a better look?
Maybe you recognize him more with a helmet strapped on and a skateboard magically attached to his feet.
Tony in motion.
Here he is flying through the air, mastering an insane gravity-defying trick.
Skater, entrepreneur, dad and overall Twitter savage.
“Pro skater, husband, dad, videogame character, CEO, kid chauffeur, global citizen, food glutton and public skatepark defender. Old AF & proud” says Hawks’ Twitter bio.
A young legend.
Did you know Tony became a professional skateboarder at age 14? He was destined for greatness.
Who knew this little man would grow up to be one of the biggest names in skateboarding history? And, also have the best sense of humor?
He's a total legend.
And after conquering the sports world, it seems he has his sights set elsewhere.
Because Hawk's next venture?
He has his sights set on the world of filmmaking!
We all remember Pro Skater, right?
The iconic game was basically the pinnacle of skate culture.
And now there's been more exciting news.
He’s making a movie based on the making of the game!
The movie has been in the works for a long time.
Hawk started production on the movie back in 2016.
But it's finally ready to be seen.
It set to premiere at the Mammoth Film Festival and then be released to the public.
Curious about the title?
Well, it obviously comes from the iconic “Superman” tune by Goldfinger – a song any game player will remember.
It's produced by D'Amato Productions.
The company is run by Neversoft producer Ralph D’Amato.
And he seems to be the perfect choice for the role.
Because D’Amato also produced every single one of the games in the series.
Swedish filmmaker Ludvig Gur has also worked on the movie.
It’s based around not just the making of the game, but the entire growth of skating culture.
It features a ton of famous skating faces.
Including Chad Muska, Steve Caballero, and Eric Koston.
It's set to premiere on Saturday.
And many of these skaters will be in attendance – including Hawk himself.
But there is some bad news.
The premier will take place in Los Angeles – so for the rest of the country, attending is probably a pipe dream.
Here's the trailer.
Hey, if you can’t attend the star-studded premiere, then at least the movie will be released by the weekend! One skate star who probably won’t be in attendance? Bam Margera. Scroll on for everything that’s going on with him…
Pets are the most wonderful thing...
But in many instances, they most certainly aren’t the most photogenic.
Us pet owners love nothing more than taking endless pictures of our furry friends...
And sometimes, things don’t exactly go to plan behind the camera lens.
Thanks to optical illusions...
Our pets sometimes are left looking completely unrecognizable. Keep scrolling to see a few bizarre examples…
Take this dog, for example...
Or these 2 dogs…?
Here's a couple of very cute dogs...
Even though we aren’t entirely sure exactly where their heads start!
An unfortunate looking feline...
This cat has certainly seen better days.
Now, just look at the perfect timing of this one!
A light afternoon snack?
A dog or a stag?
My Patronus charm just couldn’t decide!
A young boy with a dog's head?
Or just a young boy taking a nap with his best friend?
Here's a cat sneezing...
Don’t worry, it’s not contagious!
This is something you won't be unseeing for a while...
This would be a great idea for some doggy fancy-dress!
This user's sister has become a female Centaur!
But in reality, her huge dog is just stood behind her.
What's going on here?
Does that dog have any legs or…?
These golden retrievers appear to have merged into one...
Best friends forever?
Now, this is just way too adorable...
Nothing like giving a giant dog a big cuddle, right?
Here's a dog casually fishing...
Now, that’s something you don’t see every day!
This one really puzzled us...
Can you see it yet?
Is this a crow?
Or a cat?
Here's a dog running into the ocean...
About to take flight…?
Look at this good boy giving his owner a ride!
But in reality, this is just an incredibly timed photo.
Can you find the sleeping cat?
This might take you a few minutes… or a few hours…
Just a good boy waiting for his bus...
Or is it?
Have you ever seen a more graceful dog...?
Who also does ballet?!
As if by magic...
This dog has somehow changed its colors behind the tree!
There must be some catnip in there…
Now, this one has really confused us.
Can anyone figure it out?
A man and his feathered friend...
This picture was taken at the best moment possible.
This is one of our personal favorites...
Looks like this little pupper got himself stuck in a bubble!
But there is one optical illusion that has really been confusing the hell out of the internet recently...
And it is this bizarre little thing. People were leaving comments of horror, such as, “My first thought was, ‘why is there a meat sack with legs and how is it alive’,” and, “I didn’t even understand what’s going on with the dog.”
It turns out that it is simply just a 3-legged dog cleaning itself.
Simple! Make sure to keep scrolling to check out the optical illusion on Twitter that has people mistaking a car door for a beach…
