Amazon Prime Video has released some images from their reboot of the classic A League Of Their Own. This is now being rebooted as a TV series.
A League of Their Own was made in 1992 and had an all-star cast of Tom Hanks, Madonna, Geena Davis, Lori Petty, and some dude called Rosie O’Donnell. It was a movie I thoroughly enjoyed. It reminded me of how smoking hot Geena Davis was in her prime, as well as the great comedic chops Hanks used to have.
For some reason during the lockdown, I became addicted to baseball. I watched live games, bought a PS4 game, watched tons of baseball movies, and even contemplated joining a local team.
Anyone who knows anything about the UK will know that people who like any sports other than football, rugby, or cricket are classed as weirdos, so in fear of becoming a pariah in my own village, this is the first time I’ve mentioned it. #UKBaseballFansMatter
Anyway, the film adapted the true story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, which was created in the early 1940s. It tackled some of the typical subjects you can imagine of women playing a ‘man’s sport in the 1940s, but it was done with a sense of humor that got the point across without it being an eye-rolling exercise.
This, however, is 2022 so the new version will… wait for it…
“…focus more on social issues that were problematic in the 1940s, such as LBGTQ and racial issues.”
Annnndd I’m outta here!
