Gleason Trailer

Steve Gleason was once a professional NFL defensive back for the New Orleans Saints, credited with kickstarting the beginning of a huge comeback for the once-struggling football team, something that the city desperately needed. But at age 34, his whole world went into upheaval when he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Gleason is a new documentary from Finders Keepers director Clay Tweel that tells Steve Gleason’s story so far, providing the backstory of his career and the dramatic change in his life following his medical diagnosis as he deals with the deterioration of his bodily functions. However, what could easily just be a sad story is made to feel uplifting as Gleason rises to the challenge and refuses to let the disease ruin his quality of life. But most importantly, he doesn’t let it stop him from being an integral part of his family.

hands of stone teaser trailer

Roberto Durán went 103-16-0 as a boxer, with a total of 70 knockouts. Durán, who started his boxing career at the age of 16, was nicknamed “Manos de Piedra” (“Hands of Stone”). Throughout his incredible career, the Hands of Stone faced off against Sugar Ray Leonard a total of three times, but their most famous fight occurred in 1980, known as the “No Más Fight,” in which Durán called it quits.

Now, The Weinstein Company has made a film about Durán, starring Edgar Ramírez and Robert De Niro, and the historic 1980 boxing match looks like a prominent storyline in the biopic.

fastball trailer

The Fastball trailer is all about taking a very deep and very specific dive into the history of baseball and it’s all set to the soothing sounds of Kevin Costner‘s voice. In other words, it’s one slice of Apple pie and a screeching bald eagle away from being pure, unfiltered Americana. As the title implies, this documentary explores the fastball, the fastest pitch in baseball that can send the ball from the mound to home plate in “less than the blink of an eye.” Sports fans will probably be interested immediately. As for everyone else? Well, let’s see if this trailer does its job.

last rocky movie

Rumblings about a sequel to Creed began as soon as the first film became a box office hit and a critical darling. The possibilities for future Adonis Creed stories feel limitless – you just have to ask his mentor Rocky Balboa, who has graced the screen seven times now.

And while director Ryan Coogler probably won’t be back for Creed 2, the sequel certainly feels like it’s going to happen. It already has a 2017 release date and everything. However, Sylvester Stallone recently revealed that the first film may very well be the swan song for the Italian Stallion himself. Adonis still has an entire life ahead of him, but Rocky himself may be done.
