A movie about tennis? That probably doesn’t get you excited, but you could say the same thing about a bowling movie, right? Don’t act like you didn’t love Kingpin.
The sports drama Borg vs. McEnroe tells the story of one of the greatest rivalries in sports history. In the film, Shia LaBeouf plays the lovable bad boy John McEnroe, and Sverrir Gudnason plays Swedish tennis legend Bjorn Borg.
As you can see in the trailer below, this film is pushing itself as a serious drama, and that’s always a bit scary when you have actors playing actual people on the screen. There is always the chance it could come off accidentally comical like Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in the biopic Jobs.
Hopefully this movie performs well. We’ll always be fans of Shia on this site. The dude is slightly insane and ridiculously talented. It’s the perfect combination.
Borg vs. McEnroe will hit theaters in September 2017. Check out the trailer below…
