Jon Snow lives! Well, sort of. HBO on Monday rolled out a sneak preview of 7 Days in Hell, an upcoming comedy film starring Andy Samberg and Jon Snow (otherwise known as Kit Harington) as tennis rivals immersed in an iconic, grueling, and of course fictional tennis match.
The video itself is clearly modeled in the vein of your classic mockumentary, coming across as a spoof of ESPN’s awesome 30 for 30 sports documentary series. As a result, there are a number of interesting cameos from both the sports and entertainment worlds in the film, including Lena Dunham, Serena Williams, David Copperfield, Chris Evert, John McEnroe, Will Forte, Michael Sheen, and many more.
HBO describes the film thusly:
This 45-minute comedy special brings together Andy Samberg and Kit Harington for a star-studded look at big-time tennis. The outrageous sports documentary takes a look back at a pair of fictional players from the not-too-distant past — Aaron Williams (Samberg) and Charles Poole (Harington) — who played a match to end all tennis matches: a seven-day, five-set marathon that took everything, literally, out of the two.
In addition to highlights (and lowlights) from the match, ‘7 Days in Hell’ looks back at the lives and careers of Williams, a hyper-malcontent, and Poole, a dim-witted prodigy who carried England’s hopes for a tennis champion on his shoulders.
The film is slated to hit HBO on July 11.
