The full trailer for the upcoming film about John McEnroe and his famous rival Björn Borg was released Wednesday morning.
YouTube describes “Borg Vs. McEnroe” as a “film about one of the world’s greatest icons Björn Borg and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe and their legendary duel during the 1980’s Wimbledon tournament. It’s a story about two men who changed the face of tennis and who became legends and the price they had to pay.”
The film stars Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård, Sverrir Gudnason and Tuva Novotny. LaBeouf plays the erratic McEnroe and Gudnason plays Borg. The trailer, which flips between English and Swedish, sets up the epic battle between the two at the famous 1980 Wimbledon battle.
The film is currently scheduled to be released September 6.
It’s also not the only tennis movie that will soon hit theaters. “Battle of the Sexes” tells the story Bobby Riggs’ showdown with Billie Jean King.
It seems like tennis movies are all the rage at the current moment in American cinema.
