Disney has released the first trailer and poster for Craig Gillespie‘s drama Million Dollar Arm.  Based on a true story, Jon Hamm plays a washed-up sports agent who travels to India and sets up a televised, national game show “Million Dollar Arm” to see if any cricket players might cut it in the major leagues.  The trailer screams “Uplifting sports film” and there’s nothing wrong with that, especially when the script is from The Station Agent and Win Win writer Tom McCarthy.  Underdog sports stories can make for nice movies, and Million Dollar Arm also has a strong cast that also includes Lake Bell, Bill Paxton, Aasif Mandvi, and Alan Arkin.  I’m especially heartened to see Bell as the female lead.  She’s incredibly talented, and I hope her character is more dimensional than “love interest”.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster.  The film also stars Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi) and Madhurt Mittal (Slumdog Millionaire).  Million Dollar Arm opens May 16, 2014.

      …with a touch of Jerry Maguire.

      It looks more like a mix of “The Scout” and “Slumdog Millionaire”.

  • Oliver Queen

    Looks really good, not a lot of these types of Disney movies are being made these days. Looking forward to this.

    Seriously who cares about fkin Lake Bell ? Suraj Sharma was an unknown with no previous acting experience cast in Life Of Pi and gave a terrific performance. This is his second role and I hope his career takes off. Whatever happened to Dev Patel. After Slumdog Millionare he did The Last Airbender and disappeared. I guess that film killed everyones career who was involved with it lol

      He’s gonna be the main human character in Neil Blomkamp’s (District 9, Elysium) next movie “Chappie”,so there is that.

        Forgot about that. Thanks

      And he’s in The Newsroom. But you’re right, Sharma is fantastic, and I think a much more natural actor than Patel. But both are quite good.

      He’s in the Newsroom

      The Last Airbender apparently didn’t ruin everyone’s career that was involved in it. Aasif Mandvi is in THIS movie, and he was Razzie worthy in TLA.

    • LEM

      Isn’t he on “The Newsroom” on HBO?

  • Zox

    HAMMY!

    Just say no to video players with no volume control.
