Pop Culture Warrior – Episode 62

Join us in the second hour (1:11:25) when we talk with the director of the upcoming Disney+ Documentary “STUNTMAN”, Kurt Mattila. Produced by Dwayne Johnson, the movie chronicles the highs and lows of veteran Hollywood stuntman, Eddie Braun as he attempts what many argue is the most dangerous stunt in cinematic history.

Following in the footsteps of his childhood idol, Evel Knievel, Braun reflects on having survived multiple car crashes, explosions, and death defying leaps over the course of his 30+ year career in film and television. Now, in his mid-50s and contemplating retirement, Braun decides to cap off an extraordinary career by recreating Evel Knievel’s infamous unsuccessful Snake River Canyon rocket jump.

“Stuntman” made its world premiere at the 2018 LA Film Festival, taking home the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature Film and is coming to Disney+  July 23, 2021.
