The MPI Original Film Pinball: The Man Who Saved the Game appears alongside popular films Air, Tetris, The Founder, Ford v. Ferrari, and The Wolf of Wall Street in a recent Screen Rant article. Screen Rant suggests that if viewers liked Flamin’ Hot, a film about the beginnings of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos,they might also like films about the history of other pieces of pop culture, pinball included.
Pinball is based on the true story of Roger Sharpe, GQ journalist and real-life pinball wizard, who in 1976 helped overturn New York City’s 35-year ban on the game. It stars Mike Faist (Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf, Gotham), and Dennis Boutsikaris (Better Call Saul, Billions) and has been named one of the top three films of the year so far by The New Yorker film critic Richard Brody.
