We look forward to sharing our story, Winklevoss twins say

We look forward to sharing this story and bringing the early days of this revolution to theaters in partnership with Stampede Ventures,” the twins further added. With so many preparations already underway for the production and the premiering of the movie, a date has not been set for the promotion.
