The sport movie that is based on the true story of the first African-American college footballer winning the Heisman Trophy is now available for viewing.
Universal Pictures have given football fans and movie-lovers a chance to catch a sneak peek into the biopic drama "The Express" through the release of the movie's first trailer. Through this video footage, viewers can learn more about the background of the story and the reason why Ernie Davis becomes such a hero.
Highlighting the rise to stardom of Ernie Davis, at the era of civil rights movement, the trailer opens by showing an old tape of a football game accompanied with historical description about the greatest college football's running back of 1956, Jim Brown. As the narrator explained further, it becomes apparent that the opening is made to show the greatness of Davis in the football field. The trailer then continues by showing the racism that is still a part of the daily life in the country as well as the great game the main character is delivering.
Teaming up "Finding Forrester" actor Rob Brown and "The Rookie" star Dennis Quaid, "Express" is a football drama that is based on the true life story of Davis, the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy, and how his clashing idea with legendary Syracuse coach Ben Schwartzwalder made them both remembered until present time. The flick directed by Gary Fleder is coming out on October 3.
