New Full Trailer for Peacock’s LeBron James High School Basketball Drama SHOOTING STARS — GeekTyrant

May 27, 2023


A new full trailer has been released for the Peacock high school basketball drama Shooting Stars, which follows the story of LeBron James’ basketball journey through his younger years with his teammates and friends. Based on the book by LeBron James and the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Friday Night Lights, Buzz Bissinger, Shooting Stars is the inspiring origin story of a legendary basketball superhero, revealing how LeBron James and his childhood friends become the #1 high school team in the country. This early fete would launch James’s breathtaking career as a four-time NBA Champion, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. The film stars Wood Harris, newcomer Marquis “Mookie” Cook as a young LeBron, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalie Paul, Algee Smith, with Dermot Mulroney, Khalil Everage, Sterling “Scoot” Henderson, Katlyn Nichol, and Avery S. Wills Jr..Here’s the film’s synopsis:“In the 1990s, a young LeBron James (Marquis “Mookie” Cook in his screen debut) and his three best friends — Lil Dru (Caleb McLaughlin), Willie McGee (Avery S. Wills, Jr.) and Sian Cotton (Khalil Everage)—called themselves the “Fab Four,” after the famed Michigan Wolverines’ “Fab Five” of that era. From the moment we meet them, we realize this group of friends, under the guidance of coach Dru Joyce (Wood Harris), is connected by more than basketball. So, when the coach at the top basketball school in their district threatens to separate them by putting Lil Dru on junior varsity, the Fab Four decide to switch schools to be able to play varsity together, joining the team at a predominantly white Catholic school instead. The community takes this as an insult, but the boys’ dedication to each other is more important than anything else. With their new coach (Dermot Mulroney), a disgraced former college coach seeking redemption of his own, the boys, along with former rival and new teammate Romeo Travis (newcomer Sterling “Scoot” Henderson), will face battles not only on the court but in real life, in their quest to become national champs, will rediscover that what matters most about the game is the people playing beside you.”This looks like a really good movie! I love sports movies, and the talent in this film is really solid. Check out the trailer for the film below, and watch Shooting Stars when it starts streaming on Peacock on June 2nd.
