Run the Race Trailer Release

Tebow’s “Run the Race” Gets New Trailer, Strikes Religious Chord

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.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
