Wood Entertainment has just announced that it will officially release the highly anticipated documentary "PRETENDING I’M A SUPERMAN – THE TONY HAWK VIDEO GAME STORY" on various digital platforms starting August 18, 2020. This comes just a few weeks after the confirmation that a modern-remake of the video game is coming out September this year. The video game was a massive hit and the series itself has amassed $1.4 billion in sales through the decades. Wood Entertainment acquired the worldwide rights to the film in May at the Mammoth Film Festival in a deal negotiated between CEO Tara Wood and Producer Ralph D’Amato (“Tony Hawk Pro Skater” series) on behalf of D’Amato Productions.
The definitive documentary from Director Ludvig Gür tells the story of skater turned video game mogul Tony Hawk, and the near extinction of skateboarding culture before exploding back into the mainstream in the early 2000s. In 1999, the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater shook the world when it sold 9 million copies upon release and changed the skateboarding scene forever. "Pretending I’m a Superman" is the story of the skaters and developers who came together to create the best-selling game as well as a look into how skateboarding became a part of the mainstream. Featuring never-before-seen footage and interviews with the legendary skater Tony Hawk as well as industry stars interviews with Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska, and Jamie Thomas, Gür takes audiences through an intimate yet extraordinary journey, chronicling the meteoric rise of skate boarding’s most famous name.

Wood Entertainment is a worldwide distribution company. Its current release is "QT8: THE FIRST EIGHT", the authorized Quentin Tarantino documentary, available now on all major digital platforms.
