THE world premiere of I, Superbiker took place at the Empire, Leicester Square last night ahead of its nationwide cinema release on Monday.
The original Silver Dream Racer David Essex, who is joining the cast of EastEnders, made a special appearance on the night to be reunited with his bike made famous in the 1980 hit movie.
The Silver Dream Racer movie was the inspiration for the new I, Superbiker film, which is based on a season of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship. The original bike from the film was restored and shipped to London from Germany especially for the Premiere.
Essex joined stars of the film Tommy Hill, Josh Brookes, Gary Mason and James Ellison for the exclusive screening with reigning triple BSB champion Ryuichi Kiyonari also receiving a rapturous reception at the end of the evening.
The film score is by David Vanian of The Damned, with music by Phil Collen of Def Leppard and Man Raze who were also in attendance last night to be part of the build up to the film’s general release next week.
