The Trailer And Poster For Big George Foreman Punches Its Way Online
From Sony Pictures, the trailer and the poster for Big George Foreman give us a knockout blow!
George Foreman is a legend of the sporting world. A two-time World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, and an Olympic gold medallist, he is perhaps better known to young people today as the creator of his famous line of health grills. But in his heyday, he was one of the best boxers to ever put on the gloves. He also became an ordained Christian minister after what he described as an epiphany. Ten years later, he staged a comeback and once again gained the World Heavyweight crown at the age of 45.
The story of Foreman is being told in a new movie that is opening in April. The movie, Big George Foreman: The Miraculous Story Of The Once And Future Heavyweight Champion Of The World will tell the true story of one of the best sporting greats in history. The trailer and poster for the film have stepped into the online ring. Seconds out as we take a look:
Big George Foreman: The Miraculous Story of the Once and Future Heavyweight Champion of the World is based on the remarkable true story of one of the greatest comebacks of all time and the transformational power of second chances. Fuelled by an impoverished childhood, Foreman channeled his anger into becoming an Olympic Gold medalist and World Heavyweight Champion, followed by a near-death experience that took him from the boxing ring to the pulpit. But when he sees his community struggling spiritually and financially, Foreman returns to the ring and makes history by reclaiming his title, becoming the oldest and most improbable World Heavyweight Boxing Champion ever.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker George Tillman Jr. from a story by Dan Gordon and Frank Baldwin & George Tillman Jr, and a screenplay by Baldwin & Tillman, the film stars Khris Davis (Judas and the Black Messiah) as Foreman and also stars Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker as Foreman’s trainer and mentor Doc Broadus.
We could be on the canvas when Big George Foreman: The Miraculous Story Of The Once And Future Heavyweight Champion Of The World swings a knockout blow and opens on April 28th.
