Watch Trailer for Philly-Set High School Football Doc ‘We Could Be King’ Opening Tomorrow 4/25

null

Here’s your

first look for the official trailer for filmmaker Judd Ehrlich’s We Could Be King, which chronicles what happens when of

two rival Philadelphia high schools are

forced to merge due to financial problems. 

The problem is that the two schools – Germantown and Martin Luther King High Schools – have been bitter rivals for over 40 years.

Like so many

U.S. cities across the country, the merger is the result of a major budget crisis which forced Philadelphia to lay off over 4000

employees and close 37 schools.

The film then

follows the “football team’s young, rookie coach and the school’s new principal

fight to overcome insurmountable odds and inspire their young players to come

together and lift each other toward a better future.

Now the film will open theatrically in New York and Los Angeles tomorrow on Friday

April 25th, and then will be broadcast on ESPN2 on Saturday April 26th

at 8PM (Eastern time).
