STXFilms has debuted a new trailer for Ric Roman Waugh’s new film ‘National Champions.’
Three days before the college football national championship game, star quarterback LeMarcus James (Stephan James) and teammate Emmett Sunday (Alexander Ludwig) ignite a player’s strike declaring they won’t compete until all student-athletes are fairly compensated.
With billions of dollars at risk and legacies on the line, the stakes could not be higher. Now, with only hours until kickoff, the head coach (J.K. Simmons) and various power brokers must race against the clock to protect or destroy the prevailing collegiate athletics system.
Directed by Waugh, the film also stars Lil Rel Howery, Tim Blake Nelson, Russell Wilson, Andrew Bachelor, Jeffrey Donovan, David Koechner with Kristin Chenoweth with Timothy Olyphant and Uzo Aduba.
The film hits US cinemas on December 10th.
