Though he had a huge hit with the release of comic book superhero Shazam! we now get to see a more serious dramatic side to actor Zachary Levi with the release of the American underdog trailer….
American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time National Football League (NFL) MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The American underdog trailer centres 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, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin, The Piano), head coach Dick Vermeil (Dennis Quaid, Any Given Sunday) and the encouragement of the rest of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. American Underdog is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family and determination.
Considered the NFL’s greatest undrafted player, Warner is the only undrafted player to be named NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP, as well as the only undrafted quarterback to lead his team to a Super Bowl victory. He is also the first quarterback to win the Super Bowl during his first season as the primary starter. Warner was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017 and is the only player inducted into both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Arena Football Hall of Fame.
In the US this has a Christmas Day release but no UK release date confirmed yet but this looks like a pretty good true life story.
