Just Mercy shows Jamie Foxx as a man wrongfully accused of killing a white woman, and Michael B. Jordan as the young attorney determined to see that an innocent man walks free.
Based on a true story, the upcoming legal drama is about Walter McMillian, a man who with the help of his lawyer appeals his murder conviction.
The trailer is as emotional as can be and shows the trauma the case brings to the lives of McMillian’s family, particularly his grown son. The cast is made up of some of Hollywood’s most talented stars and the film should be in award territory.
Starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Rob Morgan, and Tim Blake Nelson, Just Mercy is set to be released theatrically on December 25, 2019, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
