The trailer for IRON MEN has just been launched and it's not some hollywood superhero movie but a documentary about West Ham United's last season at the Boleyn Ground and their controversial move to the Olympic Stadium.
As the 2015/16 football season drew to a close West Ham United bade farewell to its sacred Boleyn Ground after 112 years of occupation and moved, lock, stock and barrel, to the London Stadium up the road; a momentous relocation that has been recorded with the gravitas and passion it deserves in documentary film IRON MEN, out on demand from March 3rd and on DVD from March 6th, 2017, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
IRON MEN tells the story of this tumultuous and historical transfer through the voices of club captain and local boy Mark Noble, the manager Slaven Bilic, Hollywood actor Ray Winstone, the owners David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady, the local traders and most importantly, through the fans on the terraces; the people who have stuck by the club through thick and thin and cemented a community together for more than a century.
The move has been momentous; with the vast growth of the Premier League the owners decided to move with the times. IRON MEN records this dramatic and sometimes poignant transition into the new era of British football as they face their final three fixtures at Upton Park, including the euphoric 3-2 victory over Manchester United in the final home game of the season.
No-one is quite sure what the future holds for the club once they have established themselves at the gleaming spectacle of the London Stadium.
Ray Winstone concludes “It aint the stadium it’s the people that are West Ham”. Do you agree?
I certainly don’t and would hate for my club to move, taking away all my memories of family and friends who are no longer with us but live inside the soul of the stadium. Sadly in my opinion money is killing the beautiful game.
IRON MEN - On Digital HD 3rd March And DVD 6 March 2017
