Bosworth’s movie promo tour begins in Duncan

DUNCAN — To most, he was known as “The Boz,” the high-flying, mohawk wearing, controversial linebacker who was forever entrenched in Oklahoma football lore when he helped bring the Sooners a national title in 1986.

Twenty-seven years later, Brian Bosworth will be returning to the state he holds most dear to him as he promotes his newest film, “Revelation Road: The beginning of the End.” 
Bosworth’s next stop? Duncan, Oklahoma.
 
The former college football star will be in town Saturday to promote the movie at the Palace Theatre, where the doors will open at noon.
 
“I want to go back and celebrate and share this moment with the people of Oklahoma,” Bosworth said. “Any time I’ve fallen, Oklahoma always seems to forgive me quickly because they know where my heart is.”
 
The Sooner legend, who grew up in Meeker, will be touring across the state to premiere the film all the way through Easter.
 
Plans for Bosworth to star in the film began with a call from his agent. With his marriage not far away, Bosworth was initially heistant to read the script but was talked into to give it a chance. After reading it over, Bosworth felt too connected to the character he would play to not accept the role.
 
“I took a deep breath and finally felt like here was a character where I could finally express myself,” Bosworth said. “The message I took from this film was, no matter what you have done in your life, there’s a moment where you realize you’re in control and can decide to do things for your day of redemption.”
 
An action and faith-based drama, “Revelation Road” follows a man named Josh McManus who must decide where he stands spiritually after a string of chaotic events leave many wondering if they’re experiencing the rapture.

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
