“This is the first time a feature film from Red Bull Media House will have national theatrical distribution in the United States,” said Werner Brell, Managing Director of Red Bull Media House North America. “Releasing the film nationally gives us the opportunity to reach new audiences and excite those who ride, where they ride.
When “On Any Sunday” premiered in 1971, it wasn’t just any movie. Directed by Bruce Brown — who also helmed surfing classic “The Endless Summer” — this insider look at motorcycle culture reached a wide audience that was fascinated by the heartfelt stories of the men behind the bikes, earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature.
Four decades later, “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” shows that the passion for riding motorcycles is as strong as ever. Dana Brown directs this modern take on the original, capturing what it means to ride in the United States and abroad. The first feature film from Red Bull Media House shot entirely in 4K Ultra HD, the action and emotion are breathtaking: phenomenal athletes, revolutionary innovators, Hollywood stars and even visionaries who use motorcycles to save lives. “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” is an exploration into the pursuit of excitement, passion and life in the world of motorcycle riding.
“When Red Bull Media House was looking to do a feature film on motorcycle riding, the first people we wanted to work with were the Browns,” commented Scott Bradfield, Head of Production and Development for Red Bull Media House North America. “The storytelling legacy that Dana Brown brings to why people ride is apparent in every aspect of the riders he documents in ‘On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter.’”
Director Dana Brown suggests that the timing was just right for a follow-up to his father Bruce Brown’s film, “On Any Sunday”: “Bikes are better, athletes have progressed, and there are so many disciplines now. In fact, we couldn’t possibly do justice to all of them in this 90-minute movie. We set out to show a cross- section of motorcycling today, and here’s hoping we’ve succeeded.”
