BURBANK, Calif. (July 23, 2009) -   Emile Hirsch has been tapped to
narrate this summer's hottest sports documentary film "X Games 3D: The
Movie," opening nationwide August 21, 2009.  An in-depth and exciting 3Dride, the film features some of the world's best-known action sports
athletes, including X Games gold medalists Bob Burnquist, Ricky
Carmichael, Kyle Loza, Travis Pastrana, Danny Way and Shaun White.
In 2007, Hirsch garnered attention for his captivating performance in
"Into the Wild," directed by Sean Penn. Based on the bestselling book by
Jon Krakauer and adapted for the screen by Penn, "Into the Wild" starred
Hirsch as real-life adventurer Christopher McCandless. The portrayal
earned him the National Board of Review award for Breakthrough
Performance by an Actor; the Rising Star Award from the Palm Springs
International Film Festival; Gotham and Critics' Choice Award
nominations for Best Actor; and two Screen Actors Guild Award(r)
nominations, in the lead actor category and the ensemble category
(shared with his fellow cast members).

The Los Angeles native was recently again a SAG Award(r) nominee in the
latter category as part of the ensemble of Gus Van Sant's "Milk," in
which Hirsch starred as real-life activist Cleve Jones, opposite Penn's
SAG- and Academy Award(r)-winning performance as Harvey Milk.

Hirsch's other features include the Wachowski Brothers' "Speed Racer,"
Nick Cassavetes' "Alpha Dog" and Catherine Hardwicke's "Lords of
Dogtown" (opposite Heath Ledger).  In the fall, Hirsch reteams with
Hardwicke for a modern-day telling of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet."
