Not 2 Bad Movie Premier
Thursday June 30, 2016 - Charlotte, NC - One is less than two. Therefore, logic dictates that two must be better than one. Faced with these indisputable facts, we realized that we needed to make a sequel. We’ve never made a sequel before. No one takes you serious in the movie business unless you make at least two of something - more is always better right? And this is serious business. Serious off-road bicycle riding business. So get ready for a whole lot of more. More deep thoughts. More X-treme. And more slow-mo - especially more slow-mo. Yeah... that sounds #notTWObad.
