07 September 2010 06:49
In addition to their assault on the Premier League, Manchester City are now flexing their muscle on the silver screen as well.

Wednesday marks the opening night of "Blue Moon Rising" a film that depicts life at City during the first full season of Sheikh Mansour's ownership.

Created by Big Brother producers Endemol and directed by BAFTA winner Stewart Sugg, the film lives last season through the eyes of seven fans.

Following them around the country, it also includes exclusive interviews with manager Roberto Mancini and chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak.

The "access all areas" view of City life covers the controversial dismissal of Mark Hughes and the appointment of Mancini, plus the highs and lows of a season that were encapsulated in a two-legged Carling Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United.

"Blue Moon Rising reinforces Manchester City's standing as the most fascinating story in the world of football," said commercial director David Pullan.

"It will be a lasting testimony to one of the most exciting years in Manchester City's history."
