Big year coming for Ben Affleck, starting with The Way Back.
Basketball is my favourite sport, I like the way they dribble up and down the court. Gavin O’Connor really is making live action Pixar movies, because all his movies do is make people cry. The man loves telling an emotional sports story and this will be no different.
Something about Ben Affleck battling inner demons all while coaching a basketball team just has me screaming internally and just so excited. I’m sure it will be cliche, I’m sure it will have all the same beats of any sports movie, but it’s been a long time since the world has gotten a good basketball movie. Not since Coach Carter and this seems to be packing way more of an emotional punch.
Looking forward to crying March 6th, 2020!
