A clip and a featurette from TT3D Closer to the Edge

TT3D: Closer to the Edge - Making Of
TT3D: Closer to the Edge is a film about the TT, the world-famous motorcycle race that takes place on the Isle of Man every year. Racing along public roads on bikes just inches apart - with speeds hitting 200mph - drama, tension and tragedy all combine to thrill the audience and tell a very moving human story.

Every rider knows that each race might be his or her last. Riders push themselves up to and beyond their limits in their bid to become "King of the Mountain".

The film follows the leading riders in the 2010 race – modern day gladiators who live and breathe road racing – and meet some of its biggest stars: In particular Guy Martin and Ian Hutchinson.

Martin is a lovable rogue with a unique point of view on life who doesn’t play by the rules. A true maverick, he’s regarded as the “People’s Champion” and his off -road antics continually exasperate his sponsor and race officials. His determination to win his first race pushes him to the limit.

Hutchinson, on the other hand is dedicated, focused and works hard to stay at the top.

Then there’s John McGuinness - fifteen times winner of the TT – as he prepares to race with an obsessive passion to win combined with the fatalistic understanding that each trip to the TT might be his last. We also meet Bridget Dobbs, widow of TT star Paul Dobbs “Dobsy”, who accepts with equanimity that her husband, like many others, died doing the thing he loved the most in life.

Jared Leto was always the perfect choice for narrator of TT3D: Closer to the Edge. Having seen an early cut of the film he said, “I'm proud to be a part of this groundbreaking film that celebrates this infamous event and the legendary spirit of the men and women who push themselves beyond the limit to places few could even imagine”.

A story about freedom of choice and the strength of the human spirit; it’s also an examination of what motivates those rare few, this elite band of brothers who risk everything to win. Filmed in stunning 3D: Closer to the Edge is a story about what it means to be truly alive.
