When you’re the son of the world’s most legendary super hero parents, The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), people expect you to live up to the family name.

December 6thFour Minutes

England after World War II was a broken place: bomb-scarred and wrecked by years of war and sacrifice. As the 1950s dawned, it was a country in desperate need of heroes. Roger Bannister, a young medical student with a gift for running and a desire to push himself beyond known human capacity, may have been an unlikely candidate. At the time, the four-minute mile was regarded as an impossibility: a feat that, after Mount Everest was conquered in 1953, was an obsession to sports fans around the world.

-Original Interviews with Roger Bannister and Chris Chataway

-Deleted Scenes (with optional filmmaker audio commentary)
