One of the most recognizable people in Hollywood is Danny Trejo. His standout look and persona has cemented him as one of the more unique and likable guys in the industry. I love everything the guy does good and bad, but it’s his real life story that is the most inspiring and now the world will see it in an all-new documentary.

Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo pays homage to his Mexican roots and his Los Angeles upbringing—as he gives fans a first-hand look into the extraordinary life journey that molded him into Hollywood's most unlikely hero. The film gives viewers a raw and inspirational account of Trejo’s unbelievable transformation from hardened criminal to celebrated movie icon and beloved friend of all who cross his path. From a life of hard drugs and armed robberies to Hollywood red carpets and mentoring addicts, this is the telling of one of the most radical and uplifting transformation stories of human character ever put to film.

While you will have to wait until July 7th to check the film out on digital, you can check out the poster and trailer here now from Universal.
