Back in February, Martha Fischer had news of Terrence Howard's upcoming sports drama titled PDR. Well it's almost a year later, and the film is now called Pride, and the new teaser poster and trailer are available online.

JoBlo.net has the teaser poster with a link to the official site and trailer. The film is the true story of Jim Ellis, who turned inner-city teens from a local park and recreation center into a championship swim team. The film also stars Bernie Mac, and is being directed by first-timer Sunu Gonera. Sure, the whole thing sounds a little tired, and this is a movie I think we've all seen plenty of times before. All the clichés of an uplifting sports flick seem to be there and watching the trailer pretty much confirms it. On the upside, it looks like it might have a great soundtrack. And, I have to admit that Lionsgate pulled off a pretty slick poster for the film. I love a good movie poster, and Pride's one-sheet has a nice combination of 70's kitsch and simple graphics. It's pretty eye-catching, even if the movie itself seems like nothing special.

Lionsgate is planning on a spring release for the film, so there is still some time to drum up some interest. If nothing else, at least they managed to make an original poster. ...
