Bad news for all of you planning to give it at Christmas: the release isn't until February. From Lionsgate:
Lionsgate is proud to announce the upcoming DVD release of the LeBron James documentary More Than a Game on February 2nd. ....
More Than a Game documents the incredible true story of basketball superstars LeBron James and the Akron Fab Five from their humble beginnings to national acclaim. They may have been the best high school basketball team ever. NBA superstar LeBron James, along with boyhood friends Sian Cotton, Dru Joyce III and Willie McGee began a journey that would take them from their local hometown streets to the world stage. Joined by Romeo Travis in high school, the five fused their talents and, with the help of dedicated coach Dru Joyce II, rewrote Ohio basketball history. More Than a Game chronicles the inspiring trials, tribulations and triumphs of five young men who became more than a team.
Critics have declared More Than a Game a slam dunk declaring it "a moving tribute to enduring friendship" (USA Today), "a knockout of a sports documentary" (Los Angeles Times), "exhilarating" (Vibe.com), "fascinating" (Wall Street Journal) and "heartwarming and amazing...we recommend this movie to everyone" (Newsday). The DVD has a locker room full of exciting bonus materials including a film festival Q&A with the team, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the documentary, a featurette that examines the psychology of team sports, the original pitch trailer for the film and features music from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Eminem, T.I. and Lil' Wayne.
