Teaser Trailer: Jesse Owens Biopic “Race”

Focus Features has released the first teaser trailer for Stephen Hopkins’ upcoming Jesse Owens biopic “Race” which stars Stephan James as the iconic Olympian.

The fifteen-second teaser shows the start of the one hundred meter race at the 1936 Berlin Olympics which was a landmark moment in history. Owens won four Olympic gold medals at the ceremony, effectively shooting down Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy.

Jason Sudeikis, William Hurt, Carice van Houten and Amanda Crew also star in the film which opens February 19th.
