STXFilms have released the official trailer for the upcoming sports drama National Champions.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Three days before the college football national championship game, star quarterback LeMarcus James and teammate Emmett Sunday ignite a player’s strike declaring they won’t compete until all student-athletes are fairly compensated. With billions of dollars at risk and legacies on the line, the stakes could not be higher. Now, with only hours until kickoff, the head coach and various power brokers must race against the clock to protect or destroy the prevailing collegiate athletics system.
The film is based on Adam Mervis’ play of the same name, which he’s adapted for the film adaptation here, with the film being directed by Ric Roman Waugh, and stars Stephan James, J.K Simmons, Alexander Ludwig, Uzo Aduba, Andrew Bachelor, David Koechner, Tim Blake Nelson, Kristin Chenoweth, Lil Rel Howery, Jeffrey Donovan and Timothy Olyphant.
National Champions is scheduled for cinematic release in the US on the 10th December 2021.
