Two exclusive Free State of Jones motion posters
With director Gary Ross’ (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) latest headed to theaters later this month, STX Entertainment has provided ComingSoon.net with two exclusive new Free State of Jones motion posters featuring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mahershala Ali, both of which you can check out below. Underneath, you’ll also find a third motion poster featuring Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar, Dallas Buyers Club).
Written and directed by four-time Oscar nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), Free State of Jones offers an epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.
The film, also starring Keri Russell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), is produced by Scott Stuber (Ted, Safe House) through his Blue Grass Films shingle, with Jon Kilik (Foxcatcher, The Hunger Games) producing through his Jon Kilik Productions, and Ross producing through his Larger Than Life Productions.
STX Entertainment will release Free State of Jones nationwide on June 24.
