MICHAEL B. JORDAN AND JAMIE FOXX STAR IN JUST MERCY!
In the first trailer for the legal drama Just Mercy, an Ivy League lawyer, played by Michael B. Jordan, goes to Alabama and defends inmates currently sitting on death row.
Just Mercy is based on Bryan Stevenson’s best-selling memoir of the same name. 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.
Just Mercy is set to open in limited release of December 25 and opening wide on January 10, 2020.
