Peacock has dropped the full trailer for it’s coming film called ‘Shooting Stars’, from Universal Pictures which is a coming-of-age drama about the story of how NBA superstar LeBron James and his childhood friends became the top high school basketball team in the country. The film will be available for streaming on June 2.
“Shooting Stars is set in the 1990s, where a young LeBron James and his three best friends — Lil Dru, Willie McGee, and Sian Cotton —declare themselves the ‘Fab Four,’ after the famed Michigan Wolverines’ ‘Fab Five’ of that era. From the moment we meet them, we realize this group of friends, under the guidance of coach Dru Joyce, is connected by more than basketball. So, when the coach at the top basketball school in their district threatens to separate them by putting Lil Dru on junior varsity, the Fab Four decide to switch schools to be able to play varsity together, joining the team at a predominantly white Catholic school instead. The community takes this as an insult, but the boys’ dedication to each other is more important than anything else,” reads the synopsis.
