Invincible the Movie
From Disney, the studio that brought you Miracle, The Rookie, and Remember the Titans, comes INVINCIBLE, inspired by the true story of Vince Papale, a man with nothing to lose who ignored the staggering odds and made his dream come true.
When Dick Vermeil, head coach of Vince’s beloved hometown football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, hosted an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time…. no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found in this way. Certainly no one like Vince – a down-on-his-luck, 30-year old substitute teacher and part-time bartender who never even played college football. But against these odds, Vince made the team and soon found himself living every fan’s fantasy – moving from those cheap seats in the upper deck to standing on the field as a professional football player.
“Not often can a person see a film made about their own life’s journey,” said Vince. “What’s even rarer is having that movie described as inspirational, motivational, and giving hope. There’s a feeling of intense pride and humility that, at times, is overwhelming.
“Invincible is not just my story but it can be anyone’s story as well. It’s about having a dream and overcoming the odds, adversity, and obstacles that go with making that dream come true. It’s about anybody who was told they were an underdog or couldn’t do something, yet had the tenacity to pay the price to make their dream come true. It’s about the fulfillment of one’s life potential and the seizing of an incredible opportunity.”
