TEASER TRAILER FOR KENDRICK BROTHERS’
FOLLOW UP TO THE #1 BOX OFFICE HIT ‘WAR ROOM’
Culver City, CA (October 31, 2018) – AFFIRM Films, a Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. (SPE) company, and Provident Films have released a teaser trailer for OVERCOMER, the highly-anticipated newest feature film from the Kendrick Brothers (WAR ROOM, COURAGEOUS). The 90-second teaser trailer shows writer/director Alex Kendrick in the leading role, portraying a coach, husband and father, and shares the movie’s theme of discovering who you are when everything you once valued is taken away.
The trailer also gives fans a peek at an ensemble cast featuring Priscilla Shirer (WAR ROOM, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE), Shari Rigby (OCTOBER BABY, WILDFLOWER), Cameron Arnett (MEET THE BROWNS, STAND YOUR GROUND) and newcomer Aryn Wright-Thompson.
Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, OVERCOMER follows the Kendricks’ previous features FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box-office hit, WAR ROOM.
Life changes overnight for basketball coach John Harrison and the high school where he and his wife teach when they learn the largest manufacturing plant in town is shutting down. Uncertainty swirls as hundreds of families depart, leaving John fearful for the future of his family and his team. Forced to coach a sport he doesn’t even like, John is inspired by an unexpected friendship, and an unlikely athlete pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. With newfound resolve and the support of the community, Hannah and her coach challenge the impossible in the biggest race of her life.
Opening in theaters across North America on August 23, 2019, OVERCOMER will leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and dare you to reevaluate who you think you are.
OVERCOMER is directed by Alex Kendrick (WAR ROOM) and produced by Stephen Kendrick (WAR ROOM), Aaron Burns (BEYOND THE MASK) and Justin Tolley (INDIVISIBLE) with a screenplay by Alex and Stephen Kendrick. OVERCOMER was filmed throughout June and July in Columbus, GA.
