The inspirational sports drama has been on ice for awhile, unless you count Ford v Ferrari. But it's coming back with a vengeance in 2020, at least judging by the trailer for Gavin O'Connor's The Way Back.
Ben Affleck stars as a struggling alcoholic and construction worker, who used to have a family and dreams of basketball stardom. Nearing the end of his rope, he's offered to be the interim coach of the varsity basketball team at his old high school. The team sucks, but it clearly gives him a sense of purpose.
So expect a lot of tears and cheers as the team will no doubt go from worst to first as Affleck's character confronts his past and what are probably some tragic mistakes. I'm surprised this is going to theaters and not immediately into rotation on TNT, but expect your dad to talk to the other dads about this tear-jerker for bros next year. Check out the trailer below.
The Way Back opens on Friday, March 6.
