The sports drama National Champions will be released on Blu-ray and DVD March 8 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
It is available now on digital.
In the film, three days before the college football national championship game, star quarterback LeMarcus James (Emmy nominee Stephan James; If Beale Street Could Talk, 21 Bridges) and teammate Emmett Sunday (Alexander Ludwig; “Vikings,” “The Hunger Games” franchise) ignite a player’s strike declaring they won’t compete until all student-athletes are fairly compensated. With billions of dollars at risk and legacies on the line, only hours until kickoff, the head coach (Oscar Winner J.K. Simmons; Whiplash, Being the Ricardos) and various power brokers — played by Emmy Winner Kristin Chenoweth (“Pushing Daisies”), Emmy Nominee Timothy Olyphant (“Fargo,” “Justified”), Emmy Winner Uzo Aduba (“Orange is the New Black”), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Free Guy), Tim Blake Nelson (“Watchmen”), Andrew Bachelor (Holidate), Jeffrey Donovan (Sicario) and David Koechner (Anchorman) — must race against the clock to protect or destroy the prevailing collegiate athletics system.
Bonus features include “Behind the Music,” “The Game” and “Sports Trivia.”
