Learn About 'The Class of 92' - Becks, Giggs, Neville Bros, Scholes and Butt [Trailer]
Check out the prodigal 6 in a new trailer below.
As Manchester United’s most famous crop of players, the class of 92 – otherwise known as David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil and Gary Neville – are receiving their very own documentary, chronicling their rise to football stardom in 1992 right up until the infamous treble-winning 1999 season.
You’ll see interviews from former footballers Zinedine Zidane and Eric Cantona, film director Danny Boyle, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Mani from The Stone Roses as they recount both the sporting and cultural impact their achievement – and mere presence – brought about.
“My time with these players at Manchester United were the most special in my career. We came from different backgrounds, grew up like a family playing together through the ranks, all wanting to be successful. In the end, what we achieved was beyond our wildest dreams,” said David Beckham.
"I loved making this film and reuniting back with the lads and talking openly about our time together,” added the star, who retired from professional football after playing for Real Madrid, A.C Milan, L.A Galaxy and Paris St. Germain.
Ryan Giggs said: “When we were approached to do this film, it gave me the chance to think back over all the events in not only my career but all of the lads involved. Hopefully you’ll see how personal it is to us all - we’re still great mates and who would turn down the chance to make a movie with your best mates?”
Gary Neville is currently a popular pundit on Sky Sports, while his brother Phillip is the first team coach of his boyhood club, Manchester United, while Nicky Butt is the current reserves team manager. Paul Scholes retired last season and Ryan Giggs, at the age of 39, is still playing.
Leo Pearlman, who is part of Fulwell 73 Productions, produced the documentary, directed by Ben and Gabe Turner. Executive producer was Patrick Holland of Boundless, which is part of FremantleMedia UK. It’s out The Class of 92 will debut in selected cinemas from Sunday, December 1 and will be available on DVD from Monday, December 2 from Universal Pictures.
