Los Angeles, CA – The heart-pounding, high-intensity feature film Hitting the Apex is racing into theaters November 17, 2015, for a one-night nationwide event.
Hitting the Apex, produced and narrated by Brad Pitt, is the inside story of six fighters—six of the fastest motorcycle racers of all time—and of the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport. It's the story of what is at stake for all of them: all that can be won, and all that can be lost, when you go chasing glory at over two hundred miles an hour—on a motorcycle.
TheatriCast, the new event cinema initiative from Different Drummer and Tugg, is releasing the film and exclusive event content on more than forty screens, determined by the demands and data of racing and motorcycle fans across North America. Hitting the Apex has had successful theatrical launches in the UK, Italy, and Spain.

"Partnering with TheatriCast gives our audience the opportunity to experience Hitting the Apex in the best possible way: on the big screen, spectacular and loud, with a crowd of friends and fellow racing fans. It should make for a great night out and a thrilling theatrical experience."
