The Way Back Trailer #2

thewayback

It feels like there haven’t been a ton of great sports movies being made in recent years, and although some might say audiences have grown tired of the classic underdog formula, the Creed movies have at least proven that is not necessarily the case. Director Gavin O’Connor has also been keeping the genre alive with a couple of solid sports movies: 2004’s Miracle and 2011’s Warrior. Now he is reteaming with The Accountant star Ben Affleck for The Way Back, a movie about a down-and-out high school basketball coach who helps turns around a losing team and is forced to confront his own inner demons as well. There isn’t much more that you need to know, but if you’re into this sort of thing, the trailer alone just might make you drop tear. The Way Back hits theatres on March 6th; check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think.
