The Birth Of A Nation Trailer

Oh happy day….

After setting the Sundance Film Festival on fire and stirring up an incredible buzz at CinemaCon, FOX Searchlight has released the first trailer of Nate Parker‘s highly anticipated film, The Birth of a Nation.

MOVIE SCOOP: Fox Searchlight Scoops Nate Parker’s ‘Birth Of A Nation’ In Record $17.5 Million Deal

Get thee scoop on the film below:

Set against the antebellum South, The Birth of a Nation follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves.

As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

I have to admit, the trailer alone gave me chills.
