Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Talk About the Birth of Jordan in the Official Air Trailer

A few days after the announcement of the release date of Air, a biopic on the birth of Nike’s ‘Air Jordan’, Prime Video and MGM have released the first official trailer for the new film directed by and starring Ben Affleck.

Starring Matt Damon, Ben Affleck’s best friend with whom he returns to acting after Good Hunting and The Last Duel and after the creation of the production company Artists Equity, the film will explore the true behind-the-scenes story of the sportswear industry in the days when the iconic Air Jordan brand was born, with the legendary partnership between NBA champion Michael Jorda n and Nike.

As revealed by the trailer, available within the article, Air tells the story of Sonny Vaccaro, the marketing genius who pushed Nike Inc. to go after the most exceptional athlete in the world, Michael Jordan. Vaccaro would forever be remembered in the industry for getting Jordan to sign his first sneaker deal in what is the most successful marketing partnership ever, but the film’s story will be set before those days when Vaccaro wasn’t anything but a businessman with a big dream in his drawer. The promotional footage also shows us Michael Jordan’s mother, Deloris Jordan, played by Viola Davis, and Ben Affleck’s role as Nike co-founder Phil Knight. Also starring Jason Bateman, Chris Messina, Marlon Wayans, Chris Tucker, Matthew Maher, and Julius Tennon
