Tim Tebow enters the film world with the religiously charged sports drama Run the Race. The film just got a new trailer, further detailing a famed football player’s struggle with his faith after an injury puts him on the sideline.
Still reeling from his mother’s death and sorting through his father’s lacking effort, Zach is confused and frustrated with the sudden change of events concerning his dreams and the ticket out of town he had all but secured for him and his brother. But when a season-ending injury positions his brother center stage, the race is on to salvage the better life, and reaffirm Zach’s wavering faith.
Though highly cliché and a but dramatic, I always find myself drawn to these films Though the trailer doesn’t offer up anything revolutionary, it is straight forward and plays the emotional card effectively - think This is Us without the complex time jumps or triplets.
Run the Race is directed by Chris Dowling and stars Tanner Stone, Kristoffer Polaha, Evan Hofer, Kelsey Reinhardt, and Mykelti Williamson. It sprints into theaters on February 22.
