"We Are Marshall" tells an inspiring true story set in Huntington, West Virginia, a small town steeped in the rich tradition of college football. For decades, players, coaches, fans and families have come together to cheer on Marshall University's "Thundering Herd." For this team and this community, Marshall football is more than just a sport, it's a way of life. But on a fateful night in 1970, while traveling back to Huntington after a game in North Carolina, 75 members of Marshall's football team and coaching staff were killed in a plane crash. As those left behind struggled to cope with the devastating loss of their loved ones, the grieving families found hope and strength in the leadership of Jack Lengyel, a young coach who was determined to rebuild Marshall's football program and in the process helped to heal a community.

Obviously I wasn't alive when this happened, but the whole situation seems so incredibly sad. I'm excited for the movie to come out.

I want to see this. Haven't yet, but would really like to. It looks like a tear-jerker, actually.

I never realized they were literally only about 2 minutes away from landing at their home when the plane crashed. That sucks so much more for some reason.

My love for inspiring sports movies + my love for Fox and McConaughey = A new favorite movie. I'm SO excited to see it and glad McConaughey has shaved.

I really want to see this, but I'll be at my folks house for the holidays when it comes out, so I won't be able to see it opening weekend, like I prefer.

Makes sense. They say most planes crash on take-off and landing.

I am from WV but I hate football. People back home still talk about the crash.
