I know there was no trailer of the last week, but this week we’re back with a good one.
Borg vs. McEnroe (Red Band Trailer #1)
Say what you will about the likes of Shia LaBeouf, about his off the screen antics and behaviors, but the man is a world class actor and Borg McEnroe should be a real great vehicle for that acting. The movie see’s him taking on the role of the equally polarizing John McEnroe. A tennis player really know not just for his ability on the court, but is loud, and aggressive opinions on and off the court. The movie also is set on the epic rivalry between him and Björn Borg.
Borg in this movie is being played by Sverrir Gudnason, a lesser known actor for sure, and one who will have his most major role when this movie comes out, but his casting is authentic to the character. One of the greatest names in tennis history, the movie sees Borg taking on this new, up and coming tennis star in McEnroe, and everything that entails. We must remember at the time, the tennis world was basically resting on the shoulders of Borg, as movie seeks to explore much more than just the on court ramifications of such a match and match up.
So much at stake on and off court, actor versus actor, icon versus icon; Borg vs. McEnroe looks to be a stellar tension filled film, that shows us what it takes to reach the top, and to try and stay there. What do you think about the trailer for Borg vs. McEnroe? Are you planning to see it, and do you think its a movie that could get itself some awards contention?
