Film critics and fans alike rallied around the new documentary on Motörhead singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmister, "Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker, 51% Son Of A Bitch," over the last few weeks, igniting an astoundingly successful run of U.S. theatrical dates leading up to the film's premier on VH1 tonight and February 15th release on DVD/BluRay.
Theatrical runs around the country were extended due to popular demand, including NYC's Cinema Village - originally scheduled for one week, now in its fourth.
The DVD, a-two disc set packed with more than 3 hours of bonus features, will be released via Damage Case Films/Megaforce and will be available for digital download and on BluRay. Pre-orders are now being taken at: http://store.lemmymovie.com/
Motörhead are currently in the midst of a massive U.S. tour and will appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on March 2nd.
