Michael B. Jordan Fights For Justice In Newly Released Trailer For ‘Just Mercy’

Warner Bros. has released the newest trailer for its upcoming highly-anticipated thought-provoking story starring Michael B. Jordan and Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx.

Just Mercy follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them. 

The drama is written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (The Glass Castle). The cast also includes Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe SpallO’Shea Jackson Jr., and Karan Kendrick

Just Mercy will be released in select theaters on Christmas and wide on January 10!

Check out the new trailer above.
