Remember the Titans - This trailer is a great little case study in the marketing of films. If you have not seen the film, you would watch this trailer and think "its a football movie" which it is, but its more than that. The entire underlying racial issues dramatized in the movie are only hinted at in the trailer. I think it was very smart marketing. Leading with the race portion of the story may have made it less successful.
Remember the Titans (2000) is arguably one of the best sports films of recent times. Denzel Washington plays African-American Coach Boone who works to lead a high school football team in their first season as a racially integrated unit. The movie delivers laughter and tears, the full package. And for all of you #NorthwestBearcats, the real Coach Boone will be on campus to speak on September 25th.
