Is Danny Way a professional skateboarder or daredevil stuntman? Most fans would likely say that he's both. From jumping out of helicopters to his jaw-dropping attempt to hop China's Great Wall on a skateboard, Danny Way and his extreme skateboarding stunts are covered in the Jacob Rosenberg-directed documentary, "Waiting for Lightning." In the just-released trailer, we see the film will also examine Way's troubled, sometimes abusive, childhood. It seems growing up in a broken home, and losing a father early on, drove the legendary skateboarder toward a dangerous, yet thrilling, lifestyle. And we must say, his life does appear to make a compelling subject for a doc.
Featuring interviews with Tony Hawk, Mat Hoffman, Travis Patrana, and Rob Dyrdek, "Waiting for Lightning" opens in select theaters, and will be available for digital download starting on December 7th.
