Duncan Edwards: Trailer released for The Boy Who Had It All
An official trailer has been released for a film that follows the life of Duncan Edwards.
The short film documents the Dudley footballer from his school boy prodigy beginnings to playing for Manchester United and the English national team.
Instead of focusing on the tragic end to Edwards' life, the film centres upon the footballer's childhood growing up in Dudley on the Priory Estate.
Shooting for the film began at Dudley Museum in 2016, with 24-year-old actor James Ayling cast in the leading role.

The film is aiming to be released on February 6, 2018, 60 years since the Munich air disaster in which Duncan Edwards lost his life.
A statement on the film's Facebook page saying: "I can't promise we will have the film done by the 6th February, but I promise I will try my best... Again, a massive thank you to everyone who made this film possible.
"Without you guys none of this would of been remotely possible."
The Boy Who Had It All was made possible by a crowd-funding campaign which raised £5000.
