Sony has sent us links to the trailer for the upcoming film Lords of Dogtown.
The movie is the true story of a group of teenage surfers from a tough neighborhood known as
Dogtown in Venice, California pioneered a revolutionary new style of
skateboarding. Riding the waves at the Pacific Ocean Park pier, the Z-Boys,
known for their aggressive style and hard street attitude, combined the
death-defying moves of surfing with the art of skateboarding and became
overnight sensations and local legends. With empty pools as their canvas,
the Z-boys paved the way to what is now referred to as extreme sports,
and created a lifestyle that spread infectiously to become a worldwide
counterculture phenomenon. But all of this fame would take its toll on the
friendships that they thought would last a lifetime as the sport that
started out as an afternoon hobby turned into big business.
Dogtown stars Emile Hirsch as Jay Adams, Victor Rasuk as Tony Alva, Heath Ledger as Skip Engblom and John Robinson as Stacy Peralta.
