See Shia Labeouf As Tennis Legend John McEnroe In New Movie Trailer

A teaser trailer for the new tennis movie Borg Vs McEnroe has come online, showing off Shia Labeouf and Sverrir Gudnason as tennis legends John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg, respectively.

The film tells the story of their intense rivalry, including an epic showdown at Wimbledon. The release of this trailer was timed with the start of the real-world Wimbledon event, which started today, July 3.

Labeouf spoke to Variety about Borg Vs McEnroe back in May. He praised the script, calling it “brilliant,” and stating that he cried the first time he read it. As announced previously, the film will chronicle the intense 1980 Wimbledon final between the two men, regarded by some as one of the greatest matches ever played.

John McEnroe is know for his short temper. The first trailer shows Labeouf performing one of McEnroe’s trademark outbursts, “You cannot be serious!”

Borg Vs McEnroe is directed by Janus Metz Pederson (Armadillo, True Detective) and is due out in September this year. Stellan Skarsgard also stars in the movie as Borg’s trainer, Lennart Bergelin.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
