New Taika Waititi film gets release date

Next Goal Wins is based on a documentary of the same name.

The next film by the celebrated Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok) is Next Goal Wins, a drama/comedy following the American Samoa soccer team infamous for their brutal 31-0 FIFA loss in 2001.

With the World Cup Qualifiers approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach Thomas Rongen (Michael Fassbender), hoping he will turn the world’s worst soccer team around in this heartfelt underdog story.
