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.

Is The Flash really the ‘the greatest superhero movie ever’?
Ezra Miller begins to run in The Flash.

There have been a lot of trends in 2023 that have annoyed me: AI-generated images and parody trailers, Pete Davidson dating yet another otherworldly beautiful woman, pretending the fictional protagonist of the movie Tár is actually a real woman, etc. But none have quite pissed me off as much as the periodic hailing of Warner Bros. Discovery's big summer tentpole film, The Flash, as "the greatest superhero movie of all time."

Like most of this year's trends, this actually started in 2022, but really became irksome this year, as WBD pushed the narrative that The Flash is a must-see event due to its unseen-by-many high quality. Is The Flash the greatest superhero movie ever? I, of course, can't judge myself as it's not even out yet, but a select group of people has, and WBD has been relentless in letting everyone know their high appraisal of the movie. But why should we trust their opinion? Is The Flash the real deal, a DCEU movie that's actually excellent, or is this just another elaborate marketing scheme designed to mask not only star Ezra Miller's recent troubles with the law, but also the fact that the movie isn't that great?
