You’ve seen the story of Michael Jordan’s basketball career told on many different occasions, and by now you’ve more than likely seen The Last Dance docu-series which chronicles many elements of Jordan’s career both on and off the court and through various perspectives including Jordan himself, his teammates, and his opponents. In the early episodes of The Last Dance, the story of MJ’s decision to sign with Nike (which is thanks to Mama Jordan) is explored, but we haven’t a full retelling of the account until now. Air, starring Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, is slated to hit theaters on April 5th. Here’s everything you need to know about the film before you grab your tickets including more on the Air release date, trailer, and cast.
