Bo66y – The Movie:
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of England’s 1966 World Cup win, BOBBY reveals the story of triumph and tragedy behind Britain’s greatest football hero, Bobby Moore, which has been released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download. With spectacular archive footage including film from the ’66 World Cup that’s never been seen, the golden era of English football is vividly brought to the big screen like never before.
Produced by Matthew Lorenzo and featuring stars of the football world and more including Pelé, Sir Geoff Hurst, Gordon Banks, Harry Redknapp, Russell Brand, Ray Davies and Bobby Moore’s family, this authorised account is an incredible tale of an extraordinary man.
To celebrate the film’s release, we have been given an exclusive clip from the film, showcases how highly regarded Bobby Moore was as Captain of England. Bobby’s ex-wife Tina Moore discusses how Bobby knew he carried a responsibility being the Captain of England, with Ray Davies (The Kinks) and Sir Geoff Hurst also reflecting on his time as Captain. Harry Redknapp also shares a fond, comical memory of Bobby giving him that “look”, when he was sent off during a game at Leeds.
