Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “AMERICAN UNDERDOG tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner's unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player - but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Kurt’s career is regarded as one of the greatest stories in NFL history. Kurt and wife Brenda are reportedly devout Christians.
Warner has devoted time and money to his First Things First Foundation, the name of which was derived from his interview after winning the Super Bowl in 1999 (“Well, first things first, I’ve got to thank my Lord and Savior up above — thank you, Jesus!”). The foundation is dedicated to impacting lives by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put ‘first things first.’ The foundation has been involved with numerous projects for causes such as children's hospitals, people with developmental disabilities and assisting single parents.”
