“There are a couple of parts in the movie where the grizzled man astronaut, played by the devastatingly charming George Clooney, is floating around listening to music in his suit. He’s listening to Hank Williams Jr.’s “Angels Are Hard To Find” which ostensibly is about a woman but can be applied to basically anything else. It was just a tiny part of a gigantic movie, but it was entirely moving. It was so peaceful and terrifying. I loved it.” – Shea Serrano, LA Weekly

HankWilliamsJr_AngelsAreHardToFind_600pxNASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 2, 2013) – Will Hank Williams Jr. be headed to the stage of the Academy Awards?? Having won three Emmy Awards for his composition of the ever-popular theme song to Monday Night Football for 21 years, Williams is garnering rave reviews for his musical contribution “Angels Are Hard To Find,” to the current Warner Bros. Picture Gravity.

“This song was on both my 1974 album Living Proof and the 1991 album Pure Hank.  It just proves good songs resurface at the appropriate time,” says Hank Williams Jr.  “I like both Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in their roles.  Then hearing my song in the movie, for me, already made it a winner.”

“Angels Are Hard To Find,” is included twice within the movie where Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone – tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into… More the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

THE LAST RIDE

The Intimate Look at the Final Days of One of the Greatest
Singer-Songwriters in American History Debuts on Blu-ray and DVD June 4

“Just watched ‘The Last Ride’ story of Hank Williams’ last trip. “Hey Good Lookin'” was the first song my mom taught me.  Michael English did a genius version of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” It says what we’ve ALL felt.  Henry Thomas & Jesse James broke my heart.”
– Cher

“This is a really good movie.”
– Former U.S. President Bill Clinton

“I loved the film.  It should be required viewing by those who dream of stardom and for those who make and break that dream for them.”
– Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 4, 2013) – Ride off into the sunset with the most legendary country artist of all-time when THE LAST RIDE arrives on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Featuring an all-star cast  Thomas (E.T.), Jesse James (Jumper), Kaley Cuoco (“The Big Bang Theory”), Fred Dalton Thompson (“Law & Order”) and Stephen Tobolowsky (“Californication”), this powerful film retraces the final days of a true American icon.

Based on the controversial life story of singer-songwriter, Hank Williams, THE LAST RIDE tells the powerful tale of country music’s original bad boy.  The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Year’s shows in West Virginia and Ohio.  This remarkable journey leads straight into the heart and soul of the legendary performer…as he takes one last shot at redemption.  Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams’ greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you’ll never forget.

With 11 number one songs throughout his career, Williams’ music continues to touch people’s lives long after his passing 60 years ago.  Former President Bill Clinton has said of THE LAST RIDE that it “takes us back to rural America in the 1950s, tells the story simply, and uses the music deftly, both to intensify the drama and to remind us of the timeless genius of Hank Williams.”  Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee added “it’s a beautifully crafted and creative vehicle for telling the story of almost every gifted musician or actor who must reconcile the desire within to simply be a great artist and the demands of the public to be an accessible and accommodating celebrity.”

THE LAST RIDE Blu-ray and DVD includes a making of featurette.
