New Trailer for "Snake and Mongoo$e" Premieres on YouTube

By SEMA Editors

"Snake & Mongoo$e" will be available for digital download and on On Demand by select cable providers March 4.

Entertainment Universe has released a new trailer as the upcoming pay-per-view and DVD release of the racing drama, “Snake & Mongoo$e,” draws near. The film, which had a limited release in 20 cities in the summer and fall of 2013, will be available for digital download and on On Demand by select cable providers March 4. It will be available on Blu-ray and DVD April 8 through major retailers.  

Premiering in select theaters, with a series of events that crossed the nation and included stops in Reno, Nevada; Detroit; Indianapolis; and Los Angeles, the film gave audiences an eye-opening look at the birth of drag racing’s popularity and the partnership with Mattel that launched a phenomenon.

“Snake & Mongoo$e” was screened at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in January, becoming the first film ever screened in the automotive event’s 43-year history.

The film is a true story of the greatest rivalry and friendship in drag-racing history, pitting Don “The Snake” Prudhomme (Jesse Williams of Lee Daniels' “The Butler” and “Grey’s Anatomy”) against his longtime friend and on-the-track nemesis Tom “The Mongoo$e” McEwen (Richard Blake of “Dragonball: Evolution”). From the days of early speedways through the peak of their popularity, these are the triumphs and tragedies behind the legendary races and Hot Wheels partnership that created a global phenomenon. Ashley Hinshaw (“Chronicle”), Kim Shaw (“She’s Out of My League”), Fred Dryer (“Hunter”), Ian Ziering (“Sharknado”), Tim Blake Nelson (“O Brother Where Art Thou?”) and Noah Wyle (“ER,” “Falling Skies”) co-star in this drama of the two men who battled business and each other to change motorsports forever.
