Million Dollar Arm, the cricket-meets-baseball Disney film, has announced a release date.

The sports drama, starring Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, will hit theaters in May 2014 – up against Godzilla.

Hamm plays J.B. Bernstein, who goes to India in search of the best cricket players in the country. He hosts a reality competition show to find his champions, and then takes the winners to the States to convert them to America’s favorite pastime.

The film also stars Bill Paxton, Alan Arkin, and Suraj Sharma.
