HBO will premiere the movie 7 Days in Hell on Saturday, July 11 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) as Andy Samberg and Kit Harington star as tennis stars Aaron Williams, a hyper-malcontent American bad boy, and Charles Poole, a dim-witted prodigy who carried England’s hopes for a championship on his shoulders. Today the first full trailer for the movie has arrived.
Clearly inspired by the 2010 Wimbledon match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, which went on for 11 hours and 5 minutes over the course of three days, the story here is set in 2001 wherein the two tennis rivals play a seven-day, five-set marathon. The movie also features appearances by Fred Armisen, David Copperfield, Lena Dunham, Chris Evert, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Filip Hammar, Jim Lampley, Howie Mandel, John McEnroe, Soledad O’Brien, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, June Squibb and Serena Williams.
