All sports fans like those stories of the “underdog” and it is nothing other than when a character has little chance of achieving success, but still, they do. Kurt Warner is an example of this, that is why his story will be made into a movie.
In case you do not know the story of Kurt Warner – you will know it in American Underdog– and without the desire to spoil the entire movie. The NFL QB struggled early in his career to have opportunities within the field, even from his time as a collegiate at the University of Northern Iowa.
From what we can see in the trailer, it is the story of how Kurt Warner dreamed of being a quarterback in the NFL, taking Joe Montana as an example.. Whoa, the complicated process as a QB in college without so many opportunities, so he had to work for them.
Later, he comes to the NFL for a test with the Green Bay Packers team, but that did not pay off for him. So he started working in a supermarket due to the lack of opportunities within the NFL, although he never gave up on being QB.
Until finally his time as the main QB of the Saint Louis Rams and the rest would be history. “American Underdog” about Kurt Warner will hit theaters on the December dates -Yes, on Christmas night- and without further ado, here we leave you the trailer so that you can convince yourself to open up a space and see it.
