Trailer Debut: The Cup

The trailer for upcoming Aussie flick The Cup – concerning Damien Oliver’s win at the 2002 Melbourne Cup – has arrived online.

Stephen Curry stars as Oliver, with Daniel MacPherson playing his brother Jason (who was killed in a racing accident days before the big race).

The clip certainly doesn’t play down the tear-jerking aspect of the inspirational tale, but any worries you may have of the flick being a hackneyed and soppy retelling of the real-life drama should be allayed by the impressive cast, which also includes Brendan Gleeson, Shaun Micallef and the late Bill Hunter. And it definitely looks better than this.

Check out the trailer over at Yahoo.

The Cup, directed by Simon Wincer, arrives in cinemas October 13.

Discuss: Could The Cup be a Red Dog sized success?
