Disney+ has released a fascinating trailer for a new documentary film titled Stuntman. The movie was helmed by Kurt Mattila and it focuses on professional stuntman Eddie Braun as he prepares to recreate Evel Knievel’s Snake River rocket jump, which is said to be the most dangerous stunt of his career.

For those of you who don’t know, the Snake River rocket jump almost killed Evel Knievel when he originally attempted it. The movie “straddles the line between documentary and non-fiction action film, offering a rare look into the entertainment industry’s most dangerous and anonymous profession through the eyes of one of its renowned veterans as he risks his life for some of the biggest action stars in the world.” The synopsis reads:

Millions have seen his work, but nobody has seen his face. From Director Kurt Mattila comes the visceral & inspirational film Stuntman. It follows professional Hollywood Stuntman Eddie Braun as he prepares and attempts the most dangerous stunt of his career. Contemplating retirement and having survived over 3 decades of hellacious car crashes, explosions, high falls, and death-defying leaps, Eddie Braun decides to finish out his career by recreating the infamous Snake River Canyon rocket jump, an audacious televised event that almost killed the man who inspired Eddie to become a professional stuntman: Evel Knievel. Eddie teams up with Scott Truax, the son of the NASA rocket scientist who built Evel’s original doomed rocket and together they hope to clear the canyon along with the Truax family name.

Stuntman is being executive produced by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia. Disney will debut Stuntman streaming on Disney+ on July 23rd.
