Faith-based sports drama FULL COUNT has released its official trailer. The full-length feature film is slated for a U.S. theatrical release and same day VOD/digital release on multiple platforms on Friday, October 25, 2019. FULL COUNT tells the story about an unfortunate chain of events that force a young baseball phenom to give up his dreams of playing college baseball and return home to the farm and town he fought so hard to escape. It has already received a Dove Seal of Approval for its integrity and faith themes.
FULL COUNT features John Paul Kakos in his film debut as the young lead character. The movie also stars Emmy winner Natalia Livingston (General Hospital), E. Roger Mitchell (American Made, The Equalizer), Adam Boyer (Ozark, Superfly), Victoria Staley (I’m Not Ashamed, Prisoners), with 3-time Emmy winner Rick Hearst (General Hospital), Afemo Omilami (Forrest Gump, Hidden Figures), and Jason London (The Second Coming of Christ, Dazed and Confused).
In FULL COUNT, life throws Milton Young (Kakos) a serious curve ball when he has to abandon his hard won college baseball aspirations to deal with a tragedy that puts the fate of his family and their farm in jeopardy. Once he’s back home, he faces seemingly insurmountable economic and personal hardships including his father’s death, a devastating injury causing him disability, as well as being suspected of committing a crime that could send him to prison for life.
An angelic drifter named David (Boyer) arrives on the farm to provide a helping hand and hope to Milton and his mother (Livingston). What emerges is a heartwarming story about perseverance, faith, triumph, and the struggle to never let go of a dream.
Award-winning filmmaker Robert Eagar helmed the project as director, writer, and executive producer. Martin Kelley, Eddie Singleton, and Bennie Swint serve as producers, and Jamie Wingler and Laron Austin serve as co-producers. Veteran faith-based filmmaker Joth Riggs (Heartfall, Push) rounds out the producing team as consulting producer. FULL COUNT is presented by Buckhead Film Group and Reel One Entertainment Worldwide; Vertical Entertainment has acquired the North American distribution rights.
