First trailer 'AIR' starring Ben Affleck and Matt Damon revealed

In Spring 2022, it was announced that Ben Affleck would be making a film about a historic moment in the sneaker world. We follow how Nike tries to sign a contract with basketball player Michael Jordan. The film has been named AIR, which is a reference to the Air Jordan. Watch the first trailer released in February 2023 below!

AIR takes us back in time when the Swoosh was not as big as we know the brand today. This changed after the arrival of the Air Jordan. Matt Damon plays the role of Sonny Vaccaro, who finally managed to convince Michael Jordan to sign the deal with Nike that would make him the greatest of all time. This is the moving story that follows the all-decisive gamble.

Unfortunately, the goat himself will not be seen in the film, but we can expect to see a number of other legends. Like the director Ben Affleck, as well as Matt Damon, Chris Tucker, Jason Bateman, Marlon Wayans and Viola Davis.

Months after the film was announced in 2022, the first trailer of 'AIR' is now out in February 2023. Enjoy the footage below and watch the film in cinemas from 5 April 2023.
