Fans have been given a first look at the upcoming film about the late Anthony Bourdain.
“Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain”, directed by filmmaker Morgan Neville, “examines the uncommon life of the world-travelling chef.”
An emotional trailer released Thursday takes fans behind the scenes of Bourdain’s travels. Friends explain in the voiceover how Bourdain would throw himself entirely into projects and ideas, stating how he’d always be looking for the next “wild” thing.
The flick takes a look at how Bourdain “lived his life unabashedly,” giving fans insight on how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon.
The official images show Bourdain doing what he does best, cooking, as well as trying out some of the local food in different countries.
Bourdain, who died by suicide in 2018 at age 61, rose to fame with his 2000 book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, before going on to host travel series including “A Cook’s Tour” on the Food Network and “No Reservations” on the Travel Channel.
He later hosted the CNN travel show “Parts Unknown”.
“Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain” hits theatres July 16.
Following its theatrical release, “Roadrunner” will then air on CNN and HBO Max at a later, undisclosed date.
