The Manny Pacquiao movie is actually narrated by Liam Neeson, a huge name and a great choice.

“Manny” is directed by Ryan Moore and Academy Award Winner Leon Gast (“When We Were Kings”). The film features original music by composer Lorne Balfe (Inception, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes) and songs by Yardnoise with Chad Hugo (The Neptunes/NERD). “Manny” also features interviews with Mark Wahlberg, Jimmy Kimmel, Jeremy Piven, and other notable celebrities.
The Manny Pacquiao documentary will premiere at the SXSX Film Festival in Austin, Texas, from March 7-15. The documentary will then open in theaters on March 12th in the Philippines.
Here’s the official overview of the Manny Pacquiao movie:
From abject poverty to becoming a ten-time boxing world champion, congressman, and international icon, Manny Pacquiao is the true definition of a Cinderella-man story.
In the Philippines, he first entered the ring as a sixteen year old weighing ninety-eight pounds with the goal of earning money to feed his family. Now, almost twenty-years later, when he fights, the country of 100 million people comes to a complete standstill to watch. The army and the rebels cease-fire. There are no cars in the street. There is zero crime. An entire country becomes united.
Regarded for his ability to bring people together, Pacquiao entered the political arena in 2010. As history’s first boxing congressman, Pacquiao now fights for his people both inside and outside of the ring. Now at the height of his career, he is faced with maneuvering an unscrupulous sport and maintaining his political duties, while still supporting his family and sustaining a personal life. The question now is, what is the bridge too far for Manny Pacquiao to cross?
So enjoy the special preview and video trailer of the Manny Pacquiao movie & documentary – “Manny”!
