In theaters starting Friday November 7, On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter delves into the lives of people who are passionate about riding motorcycles. Back in 1971, director Bruce Brown (pictured in the above photo with Robbie Maddison) helmed On Any Sunday with actor Steve McQueen as the headliner.
Brown’s son Dana Brown, whose film credits include Dust to Glory and Step Into Liquid, takes the cinematic baton this time and gives viewers a visually arresting look at today’s generation of motorcycle enthusiasts.
Whether it’s performing motorcycle stunts for the James Bond feature Skyfall or crafting and achieving intimidating, record setting jumps, Robbie Maddison is no stranger to the joys and perils of being a motorcycle daredevil. He’s one of the celebrated figures spotlighted in On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter, as the documentary gives us a look at the intense work ethic and drive that’s a prerequisite in Maddison’s line of work.
According to Maddison, viewers don’t have to be a motorcycle enthusiasts to appreciate the film. “It’s not a film for adrenaline junkies,” said Maddison, a family man whose own painstaking sacrifice in perfecting his craft is documented in the film. “I think adrenaline junkies can appreciate it but it’s more of a story about the human spirit.”
