Warner Bros. just shared a first look trailer tease of the new Just Mercy film based on the New York Times best-selling memoir by the same name. In it, Bryan Stevenson, a civil rights defense attorney and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, fights on behalf of the wrongly condemned and death-row prisoners trapped in the criminal justice system. The film follows Stevenson’s first case, Walter McMillian, a Black man who was sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit.
Cast members include Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall and O’Shea Jackson Jr.
Check it out and set your calendars for the film’s release this December!
