Pride poster

Slip on your Speedo and dive right into your first look at the poster for 'Pride,' the inspired-by-true-events story of one man who brings hope and -- you guessed it -- pride to a group of black inner-city teenagers by introducing them to the sport of competitive swimming.

Academy-Award nominee Terrence Howard stars as said motivational man, Jim Ellis, who, with the help of a janitor (funnyman Bernie Mac), fixes up a recreational pool in a Philadelphia slum and starts the city's first African-American swim team.

The film hits theaters March 23, 2007, but you can check out the trailer now. Luckily, the trailer makes it sound as though Bernie Mac swimming buck naked is something we can expect NOT to see in the film -- so the movie already has that going for it, which is nice.
