Official Trailer for 'I Am Zlatan' About Football Star Zlatan Ibrahimović
"You could try passing sometimes." "To you? Then we wouldn't last long." Signature Ent. has revealed the official UK trailer for a feature film called I Am Zlatan, a biopic about the beloved soccer / football player Zlatan Ibrahimović. This Swedish-Danish co-production first premiered at the 2021 Rome Film Festival last year, and is set to open in the UK this June. It has spring + summer release dates in Europe but nothing in the US arranged yet. Son of Balkan immigrants Zlatan Ibrahimovic, born in Sweden, becomes, after a rough childhood, a Swedish football champion of several decades. Born in Malmö to Bosnian & Croatian parents, he got his break playing for Malmö FF in 1999. He currently plays for AC Milan - which is why Italy premiered the film and released it before everyone else. This is a story about his upbringing and childhood, and his early years playing professional football for Ajax in Amsterdam. Looks like an inspiring sports story.
Here's the official UK trailer (+ poster) for Jens Sjögren's doc I Am Zlatan, direct from YouTube:
