The tennis comedy “Break Point” has a new trailer, showing Jeremy Sisto (of “Law and Order” fame) as a brash, out of shape tennis vet staring at the end of his career. The Jay Karas directed film also stars J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart (“Road Trip”), Adam Devine (“Workaholics”) and David Walton (“About A Boy”).

The official synopsis reads: “Jimmy Price (Sisto) is a reckless man-child on the last leg of his career as a doubles tennis player. When his latest partner drops him, he realizes he’s officially burned all of his bridges on the pro circuit. He decides to make one last ditch effort to revive his career, reaching outside of the tennis world and convincing his childhood partner — his estranged brother Darren (Walton), now an apathetic substitute teacher – to team up with him. The mismatched pair, with the help of a unique 11-year-old named Barry (Joshua Rush), make an unlikely run at a grand slam tournament and are forced to re-discover their game, and their brotherhood.”

The film will be released on July 21 on VOD and in theaters on September 4. Watch the trailer above.
