Trailer: “Air” (2023)
Amazon Studios has released the trailer for the Ben Affleck-directed and Matt Damon-led sports merchandising drama “Air” which is set to score a worldwide cinema release on April 5th.
The story centers on real-life shoe salesman Sonny Vaccaro (Damon) and how he led Nike in its pursuit of then mostly unknown basketball phenom Michael Jordan – it was an endorsement deal that ended up changing sport and fashion forever and turned Nike into one of the biggest corporate names on the planet.
Affleck plays Nike founder Phil Knight, Viola Davis is Jordan’s mother, whilst Jason Bateman, Chris Messina, Matthew Maher, Marlon Wayans, Jay Mohr, Julius Tennon and Chris Tucker round out the cast. Affleck helms from a screenplay by Alex Convery.
