Those who enjoy watching a Michael B. Jordan or Jamie Foxx movie anytime, are definitely going to love this one.
Warner Bros. Pictures has dropped a trailer for Just Mercy, a drama film that stars both Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx. The film is adapted from defense attorney Bryan Stevenson’s (played by Jordan) memoir Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, focused on the case of Walter McMillian (played by Foxx).
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.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the film also stars Brie Larson and Tim Blake Nelson.
Just Mercy will have a limited release on 25 December 2019 at selected cinemas and will get a wide on 10 January 2020, and will release in South Africa on 21 February 2020.
