As you may recall, last year I had a chat with Stephan James at a TIFF party in his honor. While there we talked about his upcoming film "Race", which finally releases in theaters next month. In a potentially star-making performance, James will play legendary athlete Jesse Owens, depicting his record-setting feats at the 1936 Olympic Games. Now, I know the February release is cause for concern, but director Stephen Hopkins ("The Life and Death of Peter Sellers") has enough pedigree to keep me optimistic. I'm definitely rooting for this to be a winner. Check out the trailer below:

"Race" releases in theaters February 19th.

  1. I'm intrigued. This seems like a really big story to I hope they can tell it right. The chances of going 'formula' are big, but it has promise.
