Updated October 7, 2019. | James Cameron\u2019s documentary about the world\u2019s top vegan athletes, "The Game Changers," is coming to Netflix later this month. The new film \u201cdocuments the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports, mixing real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph.\u201d The documentary is directed by the award-winning filmmaker Louie Psihoyos (2009\u2019s \u201cThe Cove\u201d about the Taiji dolphin hunt), and executive produced by Cameron, Jackie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and James Wilks; who also narrates the film. Wilks is the plant-based winner of "The Ultimate Fighter," a former UFC athlete, and elite special forces trainer. In "Game Changers," Wilks travels the world speaking to elite athletes, soldiers, and scientists about the benefits of eating plant-based. Wilks shared the news about being number one pre-order on iTunes news via an Instagram last month. \u201cI figured @gamechangersmovie would be ranked as the number one documentary on iTunes, but am shocked and stoked to see that we are currently the number ONE best-seller of ALL movie pre-orders,\u201d said Wilks. https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/B3UdGS3lTkX\/ Plant-Based Performance Wilks learned that many athletes are already trying out a vegan diet. \u201cAthletes are in touch with their bodies in a way many \u2018regular\u2019 people aren\u2019t,\u201d he said. \u201cAnd so many of them tell us that they can feel animal foods increasing inflammation and slowing them down. It\u2019s pretty cool to hear these so many athletic men and women backing up the science with their own personal experiences.\u201d In addition to testimonies from Wilks and Schwarzenegger, "The Game Changers" also approaches the world-record-holding strongman, Patrick Baboumian; five-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton; professional weightlifter Kendrick Farris; ultramarathon runner Scott Jurek, and football players Griff Whalen and Lou Smith. \u201cSeeing through the myths about meat, protein, and strength gives us a tremendous amount of leverage, not only for our own performance and health but also to help the planet we live on,\u201d adds Wilks. "The Game Changers" premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January 2018. It enjoyed a global theatrical release on September 16th, 2019 and has been available on iTunes since the start of the month. It will launch on Netflix on October 16.
