When sports films are based on a true story, more often than not they can add up to something truly special -- as seen in these Rudy quotes. From the debut trailer for When the Game Stands Tall, it appears that we have another winner.
Jim Caviezel stars as the real life football coach of the De La Salle High School Spartans. Who, you might ask?
Well, that football program set the record for most wins in a row by any sports team in history. They racked up a 151-game winning streak that to this day stands as the most ever in organized sports.
That alone would be a great story, but as you can see from the trailer above for the flick that also stars Michael Chiklis and Laura Dern, When the Game Stands Tall is more about what happens to a team, its coach and its town when they lose.
Look for When the Game Stands Tall in theaters August 22.
