Ben Affleck's Addiction Film 'The Way Back' Gets Debut Trailer - Watch Now

Ben Affleck‘s movie about struggling with addiction, titled The Way Back, has a brand new trailer.

“So proud of this one and the incredible team behind it. Here’s your first look at #TheWayBack, a story of endurance and redemption. In theaters this March,” Ben wrote upon the release of the trailer.

Here’s a synopsis of the movie: Jack Cunningham (Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?

Al Madrigal, Michaela Watkins, Janina Gavankar and Glynn Turman also star in the film, in theaters on March 6, 2020.

Ben Affleck has been open about his own struggle with addiction.

Matt Damon Explains How Ben Affleck Saved Him From Getting Beat Up in High School (Video)

Matt Damon joined Conan on Monday night (November 4) and recalled the the last fight he’d been in, and how his longtime friend Ben Affleck came to his rescue.

According to the 49-year-old Jason Bourne actor, the trouble started when he and a group of neighborhood kids went to play football on Cambridge Common during a snow day in the mid ’80s. At that point, Damon and Affleck were both students at Cambridge Rindge & Latin.

“I mouthed off to this kid that I knew, but he was like your [Conan’s] height, like 6-foot-6, and I might have been 5-3 at the time, and I said something,” Damon said. “I’d scored on him or something, and I don’t know, I said something but he came for me. And it was like this mountain of a guy came at me and I was like, ‘Oh man.’ So before I knew it, it was like I was on the ground, he was above me, and I was like, ‘This is gonna be bad.’”

“It was right then that little 5-foot-2 Ben Affleck tackled this dude off of me, like out of nowhere,” Damon said. “I was, like, a junior and he was, like, a freshman, and he tackled this kid off of me, literally at the risk of his own life.”

“But I remember that was a big moment,” Damon concluded, “going like, ‘This guy, he will put himself in a really bad spot for me.’ Like, ‘This is a good friend to have.’”
