I’m not big into the sportsballing. I’m not a sneaker head (though I do love those sneaks with the air pockets. So cool!) But Air has me chomping at the bit. Why? There seems to be a real story here. Synopsis!
From award-winning director Ben Affleck, AIR reveals the unbelievable game-changing partnership between a then-rookie Michael Jordan and Nike’s fledgling basketball division which revolutionized the world of sports and contemporary culture with the Air Jordan brand. This moving story follows the career-defining gamble of an unconventional team with everything on the line, the uncompromising vision of a mother who knows the worth of her son’s immense talent, and the basketball phenom who would become the greatest of all time.
And c’mon, we get to see Affleck and Damon on screen together, along with Viola Davis, Jason Bateman, and Chris Tucker. Sounds like a fun time. Air hits theaters April 5, 2023.
