I think that rollercoaster ride of this film was a hard sell to Hollywood but was also why we thought this would be successful,” explained Pastrana when asked about why the film was self-funded rather than a studio-backed production.
“Everybody likes something a little bit different, and as much as we don’t like to compare ourselves to them, the Jackass guys proved this type of movie can be successful.” Any fan of the Nitro Circus and anyone that is a fan of watching unbelievable athleticism needs to get to the theater to see this movie. Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D opens Wednesday, August 8th.
It’s only Tuesday and I’ve used up my weeks allotment of “Woah! Shot in Real 3D, the depth in some of the scenes is mind-blowing. This is really the only way Travis and crew should ever been viewed.“I thought it was a gimmick, but then we saw one of the first things we did and it was awesome.So we were like, ‘Okay, it works.’” Another plus of a feature length Nitro Circus film is the ability so show the human element of the film – the struggles with fear and injury that comes with each and every stunt that is attempted.
It really begins to do justice to how scary and massive the risks these athletes-turned-daredevils really are.“I was at 100% dead set against it at first,” said Pastrana when describing the choice to film in 3D.
