Jesse Owens wanted to be the greatest runner in history. So he accomplished it at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, despite overwhelming racism and Hitler's Nazi supremacy. Now, Owens is the subject of "Race," a biopic in which Stephan James ("Selma") portrays him, alongside a cast that includes Jason Sudeikis, Jeremy Irons, Carice van Houten, Shanice Banton and William Hurt.
The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, have an exclusive trailer for the film, which opens in wide release on Feb. 19.
