Glory fades for Ben Affleck in 'The Way Back' movie trailer

Warner Bros. Pictures has just brought online the first trailer for The Way Back, the upcoming drama that reteams Academy Award winner Ben Affleck with The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor. You can check it out in the player below!

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life.

When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?

The Way Back also stars Al Madrigal (Night School), Michaela Watkins (Casual), Janina Gavankar (True Blood) and Glynn Turman (Bumblebee).

Written by Brad Ingelsby, The Way Back is produced by Gordon Gray, Jennifer Todd, Gavin O’Connor and Ravi Mehta. Robert J. Dohrmann, Brad Ingelsby, Kevin McCormick, Mark Ciardi, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Kaitlyn Taaffe Cronholm, and Madison Ainley serve as executive producers.

The Way Back opens in theaters on March 6, 2020.
