Just like every single movie at the box office on the weekend of March 13th-15th, The Way Back suffered a horrible second weekend dropping 70% due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every movie suffered a drop off of over 60%. See more »

I have to say I really enjoyed this film. Affleck turns in possibly his greatest acting performance yet. The sports aspect was very well done but the emotional moments make the film. Definitely some hard scenes to watch at times. I think just as a basketball film it's quite solid, but the dramatic elements turn this into a great film. Highly recommend it!
