The trailer for Cristiano Ronaldo's movie was finally unveiled.

The Real Madrid and Manchester United star's public and private life is highlighted in the upcoming film, which was directed by Anthony Wonke. 14 unprecedented months of his life as the professional football club's forward is showcased in the movie, as well as interviews with friends and family and snippets of Ronaldo interacting with his young son, Cristiano Junior, Independent reported.

Watch the trailer for "Ronaldo" below.

Ronaldo, 30, has won the Fifa Ballon d'Or for the last two years, beating his closest rival and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, The Guardian wrote. The two players have a longstanding competition with each other that is often seen whenever they appear in public together, which is why it comes as a surprise when Messi was shown in the trailer for Ronaldo's documentary.

Messi was seen in the teaser winking and pointing his finger at the camera, the news outlet noted. A documentary was also made for Messi in 2014 from director Alex de la Iglesia.

"My aim with this documentary is to be who I am, objectively for my fans," Ronaldo said, who will be attending the film's premiere in London, as reported by Daily Mail. "I think people will love watching this documentary because it's not fictitious or manipulated - it's something real."

The movie, which bows in theaters on Nov. 9 and comes from the makers of "Senna" and "Amy," will also feature never-before-seen footages of Ronaldo as a child, Daily Mail added. The film's website's official synopsis describes it as "the first official and fully authorized [sic] film of one of the most celebrated figures in football." The documentary will also show "astonishing insight into the sport and personal life" of Ronaldo "with unprecedented access into the inner circle of the man and the sport," the website added.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Star in a Martin Scorsese Film?

Earlier this month, Spanish paper Marca reported that Ronaldo is making his big screen debut through "The Manipulator," a new film from Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese.

The movie will focus on the life of billionaire Alessandro Proto, who is said to be the inspiration for "Fifty Shades of Grey" protagonist Christian Grey written by E.L. James, Marca wrote. Ronaldo's rumored involvement in the project stemmed from his recent purchase of an $18.5M apartment previously owned by Proto in the exclusive Trump Tower in New York City.

The news outlet noted that Scorsese chose Ronaldo's apartment as the filming location.
