BlackBerry films a true story of skyrocketing and catastrophic death

IFC Films has released a new trailer for the upcoming new BlackBerry movie that tells the true story of the meteoric rise and disastrous demise of the once hugely popular phone brand. The BlackBerry movie will premiere in theaters around the world starting May 12, 2023. It tells the story of the first smartphone with a combined keyboard and screen, which dominated the phone market before the introduction of the Apple iPhone.

BlackBerry was originally developed and maintained by the Canadian company BlackBerry Limited (formerly known as Research In Motion or RIM) from 1999 to 2016, after which it was licensed to various companies. The first BlackBerry device, the Model 850, was launched back in 1999 as a twoway pager in Munich, Germany. BlackBerry is a solution developed by RIM for delivering email over several different wireless networks. Watch the trailer below to learn more about the company and its origins.
