No, not a film about a fleet of cloned Robert Downey Jr’s wearing old baked bean cans from the recycling bin but a cracking documentary about West Ham Utd leaving their sacred Boleyn Ground for a new stadium as the 2015/16 football season drew to a close.
After 112 years of occupation the club moved, lock, stock and barrel, to the London Stadium up the road; a momentous relocation that has been recorded with the gravitas and passion it deserves in documentary film IRON MEN, out on demand from March 3rd and on DVD from March 6th, 2017, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
IRON MEN tells the story of this tumultuous and historical transfer through the voices of club captain and local boy Mark Noble, the manager Slaven Bilic, Hollywood actor Ray Winstone, the owners David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady, the local traders and most importantly, through the fans on the terraces; the people who have stuck by the club through thick and thin and cemented a community together for more than a century.
The move has been momentous; with the vast growth of the Premier League the owners decided to move with the times. IRON MEN records this dramatic and sometimes poignant transition into the new era of British football as they face their final three fixtures at Upton Park, including the euphoric 3-2 victory over Manchester United in the final home game of the season.
No-one is quite sure what the future holds for the club once they have established themselves at the gleaming spectacle of the London Stadium, but one thing’s for sure: no matter where they play, the Iron Men will be forever blowing bubbles……(please no Michael Jackson jokes! – Ed)
