The first trailer for the football drama Touchback has gone online. The trailer opens like Miracle 2: Football, but then we get into the slightly more complicated plot not concerning Kurt Russell: a former high school football star whose life was sidetracked after a game-related injury unexpectedly travels back to the past to relive his glory days. The premise could be interesting enough, but this trailer plays out like a Hallmark Movie of the Week, complete with groan-inducing voiceover narration and a ham-fisted score. It’s not necessarily the quality of film one expects to see in theaters.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Brian Presley, Melanie Lynskey, Christine Lahti, Marc Blucas, Drew Powell, Sarah Wright, Sianoa Smit-McPhee and Kevin Covais.
