Generation Iron 2 Trailer Now Out
To all the bodybuilding fans out there, in case you missed it, the Generation Iron 2 trailer is here and the wait is finally over.
Generation Iron is a docudrama which was originally produced by Vladar Company that grossed a whopping $1 million in US domestic box office and became one of the highest grossing docs of 2013.
It’s a tremendously successful achievement for a documentary, especially if you are in the bodybuilding niche.
Recently, Vladar Company, in collaboration with Generation Iron Fitness Network®, has announced that they have forged a partnership with BodyPower for the co-production and release of Generation Iron 2.
Here are some new things you’ll get to know:
It has topped the domestic home video charts and also played across several premiere platforms including ESPN and Netflix. It became one of the first ever films that commercially covered bodybuilding since Pumping Iron back in 1977.
BodyPower is serving as co-production and a forged partner for the release of the film in more than 15 countries worldwide. The production started back in winter 2016 and the first premiere is expected to be in the UK in May 2017.
Generation Iron’s original production team is creating the picture while Vlad Yudin will act as the director and Edwin Mejia as the producer. Moreover, Ollie Upton and Nick Orton from BodyPower are serving as executive producers.
The bodybuilding and fitness industry has continued to evolve dramatically in the last few years.
New personalities and stars emerge in the sport. We waited to make the sequel to Generation Iron until we found the right moment and the right characters, especially when you take into account how Generation Iron played a significant role in people’s lives and we, in no way, wanted to repeat the same story twice and call it ‘part 2’… Now it’s time!
said Vlad Yudin.
“I am enthusiastic to be collaborating with Vlad Yudin and his team. I look forward to bring fans unique behind the scenes insight into the world of modern bodybuilding. Including the role social media is playing in driving a wider fan base.
“I personally know many bodybuilders and fitness stars. I want the public to see them as I do. Get to know them beyond their public image of YouTube video’s, stage performances and glossy magazine covers,” said Nick Orton, BodyPower CEO.
Orton also said, “What excited me about Generation Iron 2 is that we’re looking at the transition of bodybuilding into popular culture and the mainstream.
That change has been driven by the personalities that we will feature in our cast. The sport no longer lives in dark corners of society and I’m immensely proud to have been part of growth and development of the fitness culture through BodyPower”
