“The American people need champions to remind them what they’re capable of.”

Jesse Owens was—and is—that champion. And John Smith ACE is honored to team with Stephen Hopkins and Focus Features to help cut, craft, and share his story of courage and tenacity.

Slated to hit theaters in February, the film tells the true story of how Jesse Owens beat the Nazis and earned 4 Gold Medals for the USA in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. Starring Stephan James, Jason Sudeikis, Jeremy Irons, William Hurt, and Carice van Houten, the film is endorsed by the Owens family, the Jesse Owens Foundation, the Jesse Owens Trust, and the Luminary Group.

With both the poster and the trailer now officially released, feel free to spread the word and remember the greatness that we might achieve.
