Tom Brady goes toe-to-toe with four icons in 80 for Brady featurette

Tom Brady is one of the most accomplished football players to ever step foot on the field. Brady’s impressive list of accolades includes 15 Pro Bowls, three MVPs, five Super Bowl MVPs, and most importantly, seven Super Bowl victories. Brady is “The GOAT,” but can the greatest quarterback of all time act alongside four Hollywood icons in the new comedy film 80 for Brady?

Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field play four friends who idolize Brady, the quarterback of the New England Patriots. The quartet decides to take the trip of a lifetime and watch their hero play in Super Bowl LI. The film is an account of that fictional journey, but the game is based on reality as Brady and the Patriots came back from a 28-3 deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons, 34-28. Brady, who stars as himself, shared his thoughts about turning the life-changing game into a movie.

“I think there are opportunities for me to tell stories that are near and dear to my heart,” said Brady in a behind-the-scenes featurette. “And to be able to produce it with amazing actresses was very exciting for me.”

Kyle Marvin directs on a script written by Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern. Brady will produce alongside Donna Gigliotti, the Oscar-winning producer of Shakespeare in Love.

April was a bit of a low-key month for movies, but there was still plenty of pleasure to be had at the theater. Indies were well-represented with the surreal sci-fi movie The Beast while multiplexes enjoyed the social commentary and IMAX action set pieces of Alex Garland's appropriately divisive Civil War.

May, however, will be a different story, as the summer season is set to begin on May 3 with the premiere of The Fall Guy, an action comedy starring everyone's favorite actor of the moment, Ryan Gosling. May will also see apes conquesting another planet, a biopic about Amy Winehouse that's already enraged people on social media, a different take on the slasher movie genre, and one of the most highly anticipated prequels of the last decade. Oh, and Garfield's back. Again. Which of these are worth seeing? Find out by checking out our top three picks out of all the movies scheduled for release in May 2024.
