Mike Tyson's Documentary Film Gets a Trailer

Trailer of 'Tyson', a story of boxing champion Mike Tyson from his hard childhood to the rise of success and the downside.

Screened for the first time at 2008 Cannes Film Festival, "", an autobiography about world boxing champ , has received a trailer for public consumption. The documentary is both directed and written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter James Toback.

Through a mixture of original interviews and archival footage and photographs, a startlingly complex, fully-rounded human being emerges. The film ranges from Tyson's earliest memories of growing up on the mean streets of Brooklyn through his entry into the world of boxing, to his rollercoaster ride in the funhouse of worldwide fame and fortunes won and lost.

Toback allows Tyson to reveal himself without inhibition and with eloquence and a pervasive vulnerability. Distributed by Sony Pictures Classic, it will box itself to U.S. theaters on April 24.
