Check out the first official trailer of Pelé aka Pelé Birth of a Legend, the upcoming soccer biography drama movie starring Kevin de Paula, Vincent D’Onofrio (yep, the chap who plays the role of Wilson Fisk in Netflix’ Daredevil), Rodrigo Santoro, Diego Boneta, and Colm Meaney:
Based on the inspirational true story.
Witness the player that changed the game,
and gave hope to a nation!
“The film tells the miraculous story of the legendary soccer player’s rise to glory from a young boy, to the 17 year old who scored the winning goal in Brazil’s first ever World Cup victory in 1958. From a life full of disadvantages and an impoverished youth in Brazil, Pelé used his unorthodox yet authentic style of play and his unbeatable spirit to overcome all odds, find greatness and inspire a country that he changed forever.”
I don’t like soccer but I still want to see this biopic! What about you?
The film will be released in theaters on May 6, 2016 and VOD on May 13.
