Warner Bros. have released the official trailer for the upcoming sports drama The Way Back.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Jack Cunningham once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?
From the trailer is definitely right up my alley as I’m a sucker for a good sports film and there’s definitely some Warrior-emotion vibes going on here with Jack Cunningham’s arc.
The film is directed by Gavin O’Connor and Ben Affleck, Al Madrigal, Michaela Watkins, Janina Gavankar, Glynn Turman, Brandon Wilson, Hayes MacArthur and Rachel Carpani.
The Way Back is scheduled for cinematic release on the 6th March 2020.
