The Walt Disney Studios thrilled 2023 CinemaCon Convention attendees with an exclusive look at its upcoming theatrical slate earlier today, including an exclusive reveal of the brand-new trailer from Searchlight Pictures’ Next Goal Wins.
Directed by Academy Award® winner Taika Waititi, the film follows the American Samoa soccer team, infamous for their brutal 31-0 FIFA loss in 2001. With the World Cup Qualifiers approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach Thomas Rongen (Michael Fassbender) hoping he will turn the world’s worst soccer team around in this heartfelt underdog comedy.
Rounding out the cast of Next Goal Wins are Elisabeth Moss, Oscar Kightley, Uli Latukefu, Rachel House, Kaimana, David Fane, Beulah Koale, Chris Alosio, Waititi, Will Arnett, and Rhys Darby.
Next Goal Wins opens in theaters on November 17, 2023.
