Michael B. Jordan defends Jamie Foxx in new Just Mercy trailer
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new trailer for director Destin Daniel Cretton’s legal drama film Just Mercy, featuring Michael B. Jordan‘s Bryan Stevenson as he does everything in his power to prove that Walter McMillian was wrongfully accused. Also starring Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson, the film will have a limited release on December 25 in selected theaters and a wide release on January 10. Check out the video below!
Just Mercy is based on Bryan Stevenson’s best-selling memoir of the same name. The story follows world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Stevenson (Jordan) as he recounts his experiences and details the case of a condemned death row prisoner whom he fought to free. The true story is one of redemption, passion, and mercy set against a backdrop of a corrupt judicial system which favors the death penalty and targets the poor.
Along with Jordan, the film stars Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, and Tim Blake Nelson, and is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), who previously worked with Larson on the films Short Term 12 and The Glass Castle. It’s co-written by Andrew Lanham (Glass Castle) and Cretton. Gil Netter, Asher Goldstein, and Jordan serve as the film’s producers.
The film had its world premiere last September at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
