The Covenant is not the only film coming out in April!
On April 28th, Big George Foreman will be released. As you can probably guess from the title, this is a biopic about the boxer, preacher, and grill inventor George Foreman. Foreman, it should be said, has led a very interesting life and I think it’s justifiable to wonder just how exactly they’re going to be able to fit everything into one feature-length film. Just looking at the production companies involved, it looks like the film is going to mostly focus on Foreman as a man of faith. Myself, I hope the film takes the time to acknowledge that he was one of the best guest stars to provide his voice to King of the Hill. (“Novelty grill!? The fight’s on!”)
Big George Forman is directed by George Tillman, Jr. Tillman’s directorial career has been a bit uneven but, as of right now, he should be riding high on the acclaim that greeted his 2018 film, The Hate U Give. Personally, I hope this is a good film because, from what little I know about boxing, George Foreman has an amazing story to tell.
Here’s the trailer for Big George Forman!
