“SPELLBINDING”, REMARKABLE” AND “a stunning portrayal of an outrageous talent”, read some reviews for the upcoming Diego Maradona film.

Last month,  The42 brought you news that Asif Kapadia — director of the likes of ‘Senna’, ‘Amy’ and producer on ‘Supersonic’, was releasing a documentary about the troubled Argentine genius, having gained access to over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s own personal archive.

The original trailer was a little on the tame side, but we’re completely on board after watching this new clip. 

As we hoped, the film appears to go beyond his well-documented football career to delve into the darkest parts of his life — struggling with global fame, battling with drug addiction and connections with the mafia during his spell at Napoli.

It’s due for cinema release on 14 June, and we cannot wait.
