Borg/McEnroe Trailer Starring Shia LaBeouf and Sverrir Gudnason


We’ve already got one iconic tennis rivalry coming to the big screen this fall with Battle of the Sexes starring Steve Carell and Emma Stone, but now this week we’ve also got our first look at the English-language trailer for the upcoming film Borg/McEnroe. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf and Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason as tennis legends John McEnroe and Bj√∂rn Borg respectively and focuses on their showdown during the 1980 Wimbledon tournament. Directed by Danish filmmaker Janus Metz (Armadillo, True Detective), the movie was selected as the opening night film for this year’s Toronto International Film Festival although it does not have a North American release date. Borg/McEnroe hits theatres in the U.K. on Sept. 22nd; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Being swedish and also a fan of tennis, I do have an interest in this. Looks decent enough

    Is it time for the LaBeouf comeback?

    Is this the role La Beef was born to play?

    I definitely have a interest in this. Being a tennis fan but never having a chance to experience the Borg/Mac era, this could be really cool to watch.

    LaBeef looks the part and probably has the temperament to match…: )…but he doesn’t sound like the tried and true and Mac himself! But overall should be fun to watch this movie!
