‘Borg/McEnroe’: Shia LaBeouf Plays Infamous Tennis Star (Trailer)
In one of those Independence Day/Mars Attacks, Armageddon/Deep Impact situations, there are not one but two big screen depictions of famous pro tennis feuds coming to theaters around the same time. The first to be promoted online was Battle of the Sexes, and now we have a trailer for Borg/McEnroe.
Borg/McEnroe appears to be the arthouse answer to Battle of the Sexes, featuring Swedish stars like Sverrir Gudnason (who plays Björn Borg) and Stellan Skarsgård in addition to Shia LaBeouf, who plays McEnroe (you may have to read some subtitles if you go to see this one, in other words). Take a look at the trailer for the movie below:
Borg/McEnroe hits the line on September 22nd, which means that if you’re interested in the movie but don’t know how the feud actually played out in real life, you have two and a half months to avoid going on Wikipedia and reading any spoilers. Good luck.
