Overcomer is a 2019 American Christian drama film directed by Alex Kendrick and written by him and Stephen Kendrick. It is the Kendrick brothers' sixth film and their second through their subsidiary, Kendrick Brothers Productions.[3] It is scheduled for release on August 23, 2019.[4]


John Harrison (Alex Kendrick) is a high school basketball coach whose state championship dreams vanish when he receives some unexpected news. Meanwhile, the largest manufacturing plant in his town closes, and he questions what his and his family's future will be. John agrees to take a job as a cross-country coach, and, inspired by a friend's prayers, decides to help one of the least likely athletes win the biggest race of the year.


Overcomer was filmed mainly in Columbus, Georgia.[5][6] In the summer of 2018, Affirm Films and Provident Films announced that they had wrapped up filming and were now in post-production.[3]


A teaser trailer for the film was released on October 31, 2018.[7]


Overcomer received a pre-screening on March 28, 2019 at the National Religious Broadcasters' Proclaim 19.[8] The film is set to be released on August 23, 2019.
