Open Road has released a brand new trailer for Marshall, their highly anticipated film based on the early career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
Here’s the scoop on the Reginald Hudlin-directed film:
Marshall is based on the early career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, follows the young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) against his wealthy white socialite employer (Kate Hudson) in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial.
In need of a high-profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with young Jewish lawyer Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad) who has never tried a case. They struggle against a hostile storm of fear and prejudice, driven to discover the truth in a sensationalized trial that helped lay the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement.
Watch the trailer below.
Marshall opens in theaters on October 13.
