Watch the Trailer For ‘United’, the BBC2 Film About Manchester United’s Busby Babes [VIDEO]

united 600x400 Watch the Trailer For United, the BBC2 Film About Manchester Uniteds Busby Babes [VIDEO]

BBC2 will be debuting a film on Sunday at 9pm GMT entitled “United.” The film tells the true story of the 1950′s Manchester United side and the 1958 Munich Air Disaster in which 23 people died.

The Guardian’s Barney Ronay and camera crew recently were on the set to watch some of the filming as well as to interview the stars in the film including David Tennant (best known as Doctor Who) who plays Jimmy Murphy, the Manchester United trainer (and later manager) and Dougray Scott (who plays Sir Matt Busby).

The director of the film is James Strong, who is best known for his work on the Doctor Who series. Based on the above video and the trailer for the film (after the jump below), this looks like another fantastic period film just like The Damned United was recently.

My hope is that United, the film, will be released internationally so soccer fans around the world can enjoy the film instead of those just in the United Kingdom.

Here’s the trailer for the film:
