In Fandango’s Olympian Movie picks video, Gabby Douglas, Troy Dumais, Jordan Burroughs, Connor Fields, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Ryan Lochte, Seth Young, Missy Franklin and other Team USA members review highlights from “Miracle,” “Space Jam,” “Creed,” “The Sandlot,” and “Cool Runnings” – while explaining how these films inspired them to go for the gold.
Fandango asked the top Olympic Athletes (Gabby Douglas, Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin, and so many more) to pick their “Most Inspiring Sports Movies in Hollywood History” – see video mashup above. (Fandango also asked moviegoers for their top inspirational sports movie picks – in many cases, the lists matched up: for instance, The Blind Side’ was on both.)
To help get fans in the mood for Rio this weekend, FandangoNOW is programming a curated list of the most inspiring sports movies, in order of the fans’ picks, at http://www.fandangonow.com/
