Must Watch: Trailer for James Toback's Tyson Documentary
You've heard the about this for a while, now finally see the trailer. Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the trailer for James Toback's Tyson, the documentary about boxing champ Mike Tyson. I caught this at Sundance and although I didn't love it (I gave it only 5 out of 10), it has some redeeming values, specifically the archival footage of all the fights and just hearing Tyson speak for himself. Other highlights, which are mentioned in this trailer, include his love for his trainer Cus D'Amato and his hatred for the one and only Don King. Even though its been getting mixed reviews, give this doc a fighting chance, you might like it.

"In the course of the film, Tyson moves from someone you might think you'd want to steer well clear of to a man you might actually want to meet and speak with, which is a significant accomplishment."
Tyson is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker James Toback, who wrote Bugsy and directed films like Love and Money, The Big Bang, Black and White, and Harvard Man. The documentary first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year and also played at the Sundance Film Festival early this year. Sony Pictures Classics will be bringing Tyson to very limited theaters starting on April 24th.
