First Official Trailer for Football Drama 'Touchback' with Kurt Russell
"Attitude wins football games!" Anchor Bay Films has debuted the first official trailer via Yahoo for another football drama titled Touchback, this one stars Kurt Russell as a high school football coach and Brian Presley as a kid who gets injured. The cast has Melanie Lynskey, Christine Lahti, Sarah Wright and Drew Powell. This inspirational sports film looks, unfortunately, like some made-for-TV shlock, even Kurt Russell can't save it. There are so many awful lines even he fumbles over, like that "the future is just a bunch of…" one. Give it a shot but don't expect much to like in this, I think it'd be better to go see Undefeated instead.
Watch the first official trailer for Don Handfield's Touchback, in high def from Yahoo:
