Throughout the season the club’s digital perimeter boards and post-match interview backdrops at Old Trafford will be used to promote films, such as Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse and Independence Day: Resurgence.

A short film featuring United’s players has been released today across United's social media channels.
