Mullan, Ching mingle at the movies

Earthquakes stars Brian Ching and Brian Mullan were in attendance at Camera 7 movie theatre in the Pruneyard in Campbell on May 3 for the 7:15 p.m. showing of The Game Of Their Lives.

Ching and Mullan signed autographs while meeting and posing for pictures with fans for over an hour before the movie started, making many movie-going soccer fans extremely happy.

IFC Films and Bristol Bay Productions brings the story of the United States' 1950 World Cup to the big screen, as written and directed by Angelo Pizzo and David Anspaugh, the team that made such sports movie hits as Hoosiers and Rudy.

The Game Of Their Lives follows the unheralded and inexperienced 1950 U.S. team made up of amateurs through their brief 10-day training stint to the World Cup in Brazil. The United States team came together and pulled off one of the most stunning upsets in soccer history, shocking England 1-0 despite heavy odds against them. Patrick Stewart, Gerard Butler, Wes Bentley, Gavin Rossdale, Jay Rodan and Zachery Bryan star in the film, while former MLS players like John Harkes and Eric Wynalda also have roles in the movie.
