Netflix



The Ben Affleck-starring drama "The Way Back" now has a title, but its release date has been pushed back.

Warner Bros. announced the title for the Gavin O'Connor film and also moved its release date from this October to March 6, 2020.

In "The Way Back," Affleck plays a widowed former basketball star who struggles with addiction and attempts to make a comeback by becoming the coach of a disparate, ethnically mixed high school basketball team at his alma mater.

The move gets the project out of the crowded fall schedule and into a more sports-friendly time period, during college basketball's March Madness. Now, it will go up against Pixar's "Onward."
