The first trailer for the documentary ‘The Edge’ – the rock ‘n’ roll story of the England Test cricket team’s rise from the depths of the rankings to become the first and only English side to reach world number one has been released.

Coming from the people behind ‘Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager’ and ‘Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans’, the documentary is directed by Barney Douglas featuring a narration by Toby Jones.

One of the toughest sports on the planet, and psychologically perhaps the most challenging, the film explores the unique intensity of the game and the ruthless impact it can have on players’ mental health.

Featuring incredible unseen footage from the period and captivating new interviews from star players and coaching staff including; Andrew Strauss, Sir Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Kevin Pietersen, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott, Monty Panesar and Andy Flower, ‘The Edge’ captures the team’s intense but often hilarious pursuit of success.

Strauss and Flower took over a hugely talented team of players who would go on to make history, transforming them into a record-breaking winning machine before the pressure and scrutiny began to fracture bodies and minds.

Ahead of it’s release on July 22nd, the film will receive three special screenings featuring stars of the film and cricketing greats at Picturehouse Central, London (17th July), the iconic Long Room at Lords Cricket Ground (20th July), followed by an exclusive stadium preview screening at Trent Bridge, Nottingham (21st July).  Tickets for the screenings go on sale at the end of the month and will be available from
