The England cricket team is the subject of a new documentary feature – and the trailer for it is here.

There’s a growing number of impressive sports documentaries, such as 89 and Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager, that are getting a small cinema run in the UK before attracting deserved, sizeable audiences on home formats and streaming.

The team behind the aforementioned Bobby Robson film are on the cusp of releasing their latest, The Edge, that’s going to zero in on the achievements of the England cricket team between 2009 and 2013. This was a point in the team’s history where they became the first English men’s cricket test team to top the world rankings.

We’re promised lots of unseen footage in the feature, that’s going by the name of The Edge, as well as plenty of interviews with those involved in the team.

Barney Douglas is directing, and the film will debut in cinemas and across assorted platforms this coming July.

A brief teaser trailer has been released too. This one, in fact.

One final thing: the film will also be supporting the Heads Together mental health initiative, with 10% of the producer’s net profits from the film going to support the work of the charity. That’s expected to raise at least £30,000.
