Prepare to be Inspired by the Trailer for ‘Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie’

Mr. Rogers, Bob Ross, Rick Moranis, and Michael J. Fox. These are the four horseman of Hollywood wholesome. Fox has been a beloved icon for nearly 40 years in the movie industry, first as a sitcom star, then a teen heartthrob movie star, and last as an inspiration to all those afflicted by a debilitating disease, in his case Parkinson’s.

It’s says alot about Fox as a person seeing how affected people were by his diagnosis, but he doesn’t want your pity and that seems to be the throughline of the upcoming Apple TV+ documentary Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie. Part retrospective, part biography all inspiration even the trailer for this movie almost moved me to tears so I don’t want to even imagine what the full feature is going to do to me emotionally.

Check out the trailer below and look for Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie on Apple TV+ May 12th, 2023

Official Synopsis:
The film, which will incorporate documentary, archival and scripted elements, will recount Fox’s extraordinary story in his own words — the improbable tale of an undersized kid from a Canadian army base who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood. The account of Fox’s public life, full of nostalgic thrills and cinematic gloss, will unspool alongside his never-before-seen private journey, including the years that followed his diagnosis, at 29, with Parkinson’s disease. Intimate and honest, and produced with unprecedented access to Fox and his family, the film will chronicle Fox’s personal and professional triumphs and travails and will explore what happens when an incurable optimist confronts an incurable disease. With a mix of adventure and romance, comedy and drama, watching the film will feel like … well, like a Michael J. Fox movie.
