TIFF '17 Press Conferences: Day 1
Game on, Shia
Game on, Shia. Borg/McEnroe, our Opening Night Gala, tells the story of the epic rivalry between Swedish tennis legend Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) and his greatest adversary, the brash American John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf), which came to a head during the 1980 Wimbledon Championships.
The Borg/McEnroe cast and crew stopped by TIFF Bell Lightbox on the way to their send-up to Björn Borg and John McEnroe: Janus Metz' Borg/McEnroe.
Watch the press conference for Borg/McEnroe below live at 3pm ET:
Borg/McEnroe opens the Toronto International Film Festival tonight at 6:30pm at the Princess of Wales Theatre’s Visa Screening Room, with additional public screenings on Sunday, Sept 10, and Saturday, September 16.
