Walt Disney Pictures Presents A Jerry Bruckheimer Production

Josh Lucas Leads Spirited Cast In The Inspirational True Story
That Changed Sports Forever

<u><i>DVD Bonus Features Deliver Deleted Scenes, Music Video,
Coach Haskins Commentary, Extended Interviews and More</b></i></u>

BURBANK, Calif., March 10, 2006 – From the Studio that brought audiences “Remember The Titans,”
Walt Disney Pictures presents a Jerry Bruckheimer Film Production, <b>GLORY ROAD</b>, debuting on DVD
and UMD™ on <b>June 6</b>. This inspiring, exhilarating film is the true story of legendary basketball coach
Don Haskins and his 1966 NCAA championship team, the first all African-American squad to win the
national title. The DVD features the Alicia Keys music video “Sweet Music;” never-before-seen deleted
scenes; “More Than A Game: Legacy Of The Bear” – with commentary by Coach Haskins; “Surviving
Practice” featuring NBA all-star Tim Hardaway; extended interviews with former Haskins players; and
audio commentaries with super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the film’s director and writers.

Josh Lucas (“Stealth,” “Sweet Home Alabama”) stars as Hall of Fame coach Don Haskins, in the true
story of the team that changed the game of basketball forever. In the 1960’s, Texas Western (now the
University of Texas El Paso) hires Haskins to coach a small-time, losing basketball program. Through
vigorous recruiting, Haskins assembles a line-up with many African-Americans, a novelty in college
basketball. With a grueling coaching regime and tough love, Haskins molds his recruits into a promising
team. Amidst the country’s burgeoning civil-rights movement, the players and coaches endure raciallycharged
insults as they go forward in the national college tournaments. Haskins fields the first all
African-American starting line-up in a championship game, and together they defy the odds and win the
1966 NCAA Championship. Their courage and dedication change the face of college basketball and
national sports for all time.

Available for $29.99 (S.R.P.) on DVD (available in separate full and widescreen editions) and on UMD™
for PSP™ (widescreen), from Walt Disney Home Entertainment and Jerry Bruckheimer Productions.

<b>GLORY ROAD</b>’s superb cast includes Derek Luke (“Friday Night Lights,” Antwone Fisher”) and Jon
Voight (“National Treasure,” Academy Award® winner, Best Actor, “Coming Home” 1978 and “Midnight
Cowboy” 1969.)

<b><u>DVD BONUS MATERIALS</u>:</b>



Meet coaching legend Don Haskins, known as the coach who forever changed the face of college
basketball. This feature follows Coach Haskins’ illustrious career with the University of Texas El
Paso, from his astounding 1966 NCAA national championship through a distinguished 38-year
college basketball coaching career. Through interviews with basketball players, coaches and
historians, plus archival footage, real-life game footage and photos, the story of Coach Haskins’
remarkable achievements is presented. There are interviews with former players including fivetime
NBA All-Star Tim Hardaway, and one-time opponent (and former L.A. Lakers and current
Miami Heat coach) Pat Riley.

This featurette follows the grueling four-hour per day practice schedule followed by Coach
Haskins’ winning 1966 team. Five-time NBA All-Star Tim Hardaway, coach of the ABA’s Florida
Pit Bulls, leads his squad through a “Haskins-esque” practice. With interviews and film clips,
audiences are invited to step inside a real-life, tough-as-nails practice session.

Extended interviews with University of Texas El Paso basketball players that have played for
Coach Haskins.

Audio commentary with Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Director James Gartner.

Yeah, I'm glad this movie is getting Spanish audio. I mean, if you ever use Google Earth regularly, you'll notice that UTEP is RIGHT NEXT DOOR to Mexico!

Looks like a pretty good little collection of bonus features.

The film is yet to secure a release date Down Under, as I'm not sure how marketable it would be here anyway. Maybe it will be worth an import.

Even if it does feature Alicia Keys. :)

Yes! I saw this move in theater twice. The first time, I was only seeing it because of Josh Lucas who plays Don Haskins. The second time I saw it because of Josh Lucas and because it's a great movie. So I have 2 good reasons to get this DVD. :wink:
