The collection opens and closes with tracks from Hollywood rap/rock act 3rd Strike -- "No Light," from the band's 2001 self-titled EP, and a cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid," originally released on last year's "Lost Angel." Also included is Fatboy Slim's "Praise You" (a No. 2 hit on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart), Moby's "Whispering Wind," and OPM's "Heaven Is a Halfpipe."
The film chronicles the action and behind-the-scenes stories of the 2001 X Games in Philadelphia. Directed by Bruce Hendricks (executive producer/second assistant director of "Pearl Harbor"), "Ultimate X" opens Friday (May 10) in U.S. IMAX and large screen theaters. Several of the athletes are expected for tonight's premiere at the Universal CityWalk IMAX Theatre in Los Angeles. Also tipped to be on hand are Pink, Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, Jack Osbourne of "The Osbournes," and members of 3rd Strike.
