This trailer had me tearing up. Yeah, I'm a sap and a sucker for "based on a true story" sports movies, where the kid over comes his low income roots to be a star and live his dream. So, this pretty much fits the bill perfectly. It's coming out just before Thanksgiving, which is perfect since I'm sure it'll attract the family demographic.
Wow, I can't believe this is the real marketing poster for this movie. It looks like something I could have done in photoshop in 5 minutes, and I'm no where near a pro on that program.
They should have gone with action shots from the film, obscure shots of banks, ambulances, armored cars, or really anything over this atrocity.
For more on the film, check out the trailer:
I find it pretty lackluster, but it has all the exciting elements of a good heist film and some star power behind it. Maybe this is a great movie that suffers from horrible marketing.
