Cinematical has just received this exclusive poster for Tyson, a much buzzed-about documentary about former boxing champion Mike Tyson that's been making the festival rounds and is now ready to hit theaters on April 24. Directed by James Toback (The Pick-Up Artist, Bugsy), Tyson follows the life experiences of Mike Tyson through a mixture of original interviews, archival footage and photographs. As James tells us in his Cannes review of the film from last year, Tyson "is older, sadder, sober, off drugs and out of the fight game, trying to battle things you cannot simply strike with your fists." He later adds, "Tyson isn't just a look at the hitting and hitting back of boxing and a champion who defeated almost everyone who faced him; in its finest moments, it shows us a man determined to stop defeating himself." Meanwhile, I just wanna know why he covered half his face with that wacky tattoo?
