Vegan documentary The Game Changers is now available for pre-order on iTunes ($14.99) and is expected to make its digital debut through the platform on October 1 in select countries, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Earlier this week, the film screened in more than 1,000 theaters worldwide during a one-day global event. The Game Changers—narrated by mixed martial arts champion and Special Forces trainer James Wilks—follows a diverse group of elite athletes that have thrived on a plant-based diet with the aim of dispelling the myth that consumption of animal products is key for athletic performance. The first cut of the film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last year and the second edit includes additional footage and highlights game-changing athletes such as Olympic cyclist Dotsie Bausch, German strongman Patrik Baboumian, and a slew of NFL players, amongst others, alongside doctors who demonstrate the performance advantages of consuming a plant-based diet. For its second cut, the film added martial arts legend Jackie Chan, NBA player Chris Paul, tennis star Novak Djokovic, and world race car champion Lewis Hamilton to its impressive list of executive producers, which also include Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Cameron, and Louis Psihoyos—director of award-winning film The Cove.
