Directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by Justin Kuritzkes, the film has all the big names attached to it, including both the cast and the crew.

The plot line

Going by what we have seen in the trailer, Challengers is a sports film packed with drama and has elements of a romantic comedy. For the convenience of understanding, let us divide the film into two parts- the young Tashi era and the older Tashi era.

While the young Tashi era is supposedly going to be a light-hearted rom-com navigating through teenage love, especially a love triangle. The jam-packed drama will start in the older Tashi era. After facing an injury on the field, Tashi moves away from the game and returns years later as a coach to her husband. Art is at a low point in his career and has been facing more defeats than he would like.

When is Challengers releasing?

Challengers is scheduled for a theatrical release on 15th September, 2023. However, since it is under the banner of MGM Studios which is now owned by Amazon, the movie might be released on the OTT platform soon after its release.
