New The Way Back trailer: Never give up on a second shot
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new trailer for Gavin O’Connor’s forthcoming basketball drama film The Way Back, highlighting the inspiring journey of Ben Affleck‘s Jack Cunningham as he tries to put himself back together by coaching a high school basketball team. This marks the second collaboration between O’Connor and Affleck, who have worked together on 2016’s action thriller The Accountant. Check out the video in the player below!
In The Way Back (also known as Finding The Way Back), Jack Cunningham (Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life.
When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?
Gordon Gray, Jennifer Todd, Gavin O’Connor and Ravi Mehta produced the film, written by Brad Ingelsby. Robert J. Dohrmann, Brad Ingelsby, Kevin McCormick, Mark Ciardi, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Kaitlyn Taaffe Cronholm, and Madison Ainley served as executive producers.
The Way Back also stars Al Madrigal (Night School), Michaela Watkins (Casual), Janina Gavankar (True Blood) and Glynn Turman (Bumblebee).
The film is expected to hit theaters on March 6, 2020.
