On the heels of their hit film “War Room,” the Kendrick Brothers are returning with “Overcomer,” a new drama starring Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer and Shari Rigby.
The filmmakers released the trailer — set to Lauren Daigle’s “You Say” — delivers a sneak peek this week, offering a sneak peek into the sports-themed drama centering on Kendrick as a high school basketball coach.
“Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team,” reads the film synopsis. “Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.”
“Overcomer” is the latest film from the Kendrick brothers, following the success of “War Room,” which grossed more than $74 million at the box office, “Facing the Giants,” and “Fireproof.”
After starring in “War Room,” Shirer returns to the big screen as the school’s principal.
The title of the film is inspired by 1 John 5:5, which reads, “Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”
Opening nationwide on Aug. 23, “Overcomer” dares to leave viewers filled with hope and inspired to dream, and asks the question: What do you allow to define you?
