Would you give up everything for a second chance? Kurt Russell's Touchback trailer

02.29.2012by:

Just when you thought you had seen every football movie, someone decided to add time travel into the mix! No, it won't be via a Delorean, or a blue telephone booth. But it could be a magic football!

TOUCHBACK follows Brian Presley as Scott Murphy, an injured player who is given a chance to go back and relive his greatest game. A game that caused him a near-crippling injury, and left him with a bad leg.

Presley travels back to 1991, and gets to relive the moments surrounding that game with his coach, played by Kurt Russell. With a chance to relive the past, will Scott find a way to change his future?

The trailer's strengths are Kurt Russell's coaching, and the football action. Hopefully the film will use the time travel aspect to put a unique spin on a well-worn story that we have seen many times across the sports genre.

The film stars costars Marc Blucas, and Christine Lahti, and opens in limited release on April 13th, 2012.

Unspirational

I hope he drops out of the game, gets the scholarship, a new wife and smarter kids. Did people hunker around sixties style radios in the nineties?

Looks like it would neither be particularly good nor particularly bad. Trailer showed the entire movie though. No reason to watch it now. lol

Kurt Russell takes 4 years off from acting and THIS is his way of returning? A generic coach in a supporting role in a stupid football high school fantasy drama for red states? I'm going to pretend this never happened and clap like a retard once the Django Unchained trailer emerges. On the other hand, maybe it's best he shake out the kinks in his skills on something nobody is going to care too much about so that once he truly comes back in Django, he'll have all systems firing!

I'm sure he'll elevate this sappy material. Kurt Russell is like, my favorite actor ever, but can't say this looks awesome. Still, we get to look forward to him and Tarantino teaming up again for Django Unchained.
