Mark Wahlberg has become one hot commodity. After striking gold with multiple films HBO tapped the full value of the singer-turned-actor by having him exec-produce one of my favorite television series, Entourage. That doesn't mean the guy has pulled out of film, however, and we can again see him in theatres as early as this summer.
Invincible Trailer, Stills and Poster
From the studio that brought you The Rookie and Remember the Titans comes Invincible, inspired by the true story of Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), a man with nothing to lose who ignored the staggering odds and made his dream come true. When the coach (Greg Kinnear) of Papale's beloved hometown football team hosted an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time -- no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found this way.
Certainly no one like Papale -- a down-on-his-luck, 30 year-old, substitute teacher and part-time bartender who never even played college football. But against these odds, Papale made the team and soon found himself living every fan's fantasy -- moving from his cheap seats in the upper deck to standing on the field as a professional football player.
You can check out the trailer for Invincible over at the film's movie page.
