Full Trailer for 'American Underdog' Football Movie with Zachary Levi
"If this is your dream, don't give up on it!" Lionsgate has debuted the full official trailer for their football movie titled American Underdog, opening in theaters on Christmas Day during the holidays later this year. The story of NFL MVP and Hall of Fame quarterback, Kurt Warner, who went from stocking shelves at a supermarket to becoming an American football superstar. Zachary Levi stars as Kurt, along with Anna Paquin, Dennis Quaid, Adam Baldwin, Bruce McGill, Ser'Darius Blain, Chance Kelly, Morgana Shaw, and Brett Varvel. The film centers on Warner's unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player – but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, only with the support of his wife and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Kurt Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. This seems like the opposite of the other football movie this fall - National Champions. This is just the story of a talented quarterback finally getting his shot. And you know it's going to be a hit - football films usually are.
