New trailer for ‘King Otto’ (VIDEO)
Umbrella Entertainment has released a new trailer for ‘King Otto’.
Scheduled for release on May 27 of this year, “King Otto” is an incredible documentary about foreigners defying seemingly insurmountable odds and rekindling a shared sense of national pride.
The official film synopsis reads as follows:
“In the summer of 2004, audiences watched in disbelief as they witnessed one of the greatest athletic underdog stories of all time. Greece – a country that had never won a single game or even scored a goal in a tournament – toppled the giants of world football to win the 2004 European Championship with odds of 300: 1. At the heart of this victory was the legendary German football coach “King” Otto Rehhagel who put strategy, discipline and respect above all else. After achieving great success in Germany, he made the bold decision to leave everything he knew behind to turn the underperforming team into champions, even though he doesn’t speak a word of Greek.
The film is directed by Christopher André Marks (Tiger Hood, 2015) and produced by Shani Hinton (Marianne & Léonard: Words of love, 2019).
