American Underdog: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Even for those who don't enjoy watching football, it's tough to argue against the notion that it makes for compelling drama. Especially when the human element is factored in. Such is the case with the story of Kurt Warner, the Super Bowl-winning quarterback who led the Rams to an unexpected championship, leading an offense that would go down in history the "Greatest Show on Turf." That story is about to be documented in the upcoming faith-based drama, "American Underdog."

While faith-based cinema isn't always for everyone, this movie seems far more focused on the unique road Warner walked to become a Hall of Fame quarterback. And we're here to give you all of the need-to-known information to be ready when the movie arrives later this year.

Here is everything you need to know about "American Underdog."
