Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Film, AIR, about Sonny Vaccaro and the Early Days of Nike, Slated for Worldwide Theatrical Release April 5th

AIR will be coming to theatres April 5th! The Ben Affleck and Matt Damon film is about RPJ friend and client, Sonny Vaccaro and his tenacious efforts to sign NBA superstar Michael Jordan to a first of its kind deal with Nike. AIR tells the story of how Sonny, played by Damon, took a high risk bet to build the Jordan brand and lay the groundwork for the multibillion-dollar contemporary sneaker industry.

AIR’s theatrical release will be a worldwide affair, in advance of its debut on Amazon Prime Video. An Amazon Studios, Skydance Sports, and Mandalay Pictures project, this film is the first time Affleck will direct a feature with Damon starring. We are quite excited to see Sonny’s story on the big screen! You can read more about the film here.
