Disney has released the first trailer and poster for Craig Gillespie‘s drama Million Dollar Arm. Based on a true story, Jon Hamm plays a washed-up sports agent who travels to India and sets up a televised, national game show “Million Dollar Arm” to see if any cricket players might cut it in the major leagues. The trailer screams “Uplifting sports film” and there’s nothing wrong with that, especially when the script is from The Station Agent and Win Win writer Tom McCarthy. Underdog sports stories can make for nice movies, and Million Dollar Arm also has a strong cast that also includes Lake Bell, Bill Paxton, Aasif Mandvi, and Alan Arkin. I’m especially heartened to see Bell as the female lead. She’s incredibly talented, and I hope her character is more dimensional than “love interest”.

I started seeing commercials for this around the first episode of Mad Men this month.
Since it's a Disney movie, I'm afraid it might be too saccharine for my tastes. Let's see!
The exciting part for me, apart from Jon Hamm!!, is that the two pitchers are played by Suraj Sharma, star of Life of Pi, and Madhur Mittal, who played the gangster brother of the main character in Slumdog Millionaire.
