Sports fans! Movie lovers! Jeremy Lin devotees! The feature documentary Linsanity, directed by Evan Jackson Leong, hits select theaters nationwide this Friday, October 4. The film is an in-depth look at the unlikely underdog story of Jeremy Lin, from one kid's humble hoop dreams to his meteoric rise to global NBA stardom. But this is not an overnight success story. This is a story about family, faith and perseverance.
Since even before its world premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, I've talked a lot about this movie. This is your chance to relive the Linsanity. Have you made your plans yet? Tickets are available now. The important thing to remember is that first weekend ticket sales are really important to ensure that the film's theatrical run has a better chance in the weeks to come.
First, here's the theatrical trailer again to get you psyched:
