The trailer for Just Mercy, one of the most highly-anticipated dramas arriving in the holiday season, is here, and we can practically hear the award season acclaim beginning to buzz.
The powerful true story comes to the big screen starring Michael B. Jordan as young lawyer and Harvard alum Bryan Stevenson, who begins a history-making battle for justice when he travels to Alabama to defend those wrongly convicted. With the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Captain Marvel's Brie Larson), he looks into the case of death row inmate Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), who was sentenced to die in 1987 for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite his claims of innocence.
With the system and the chances for Walter's freedom stacked against them, Bryan begins the legal fight of his life. Watch the moving trailer for the film above, which is due out in the UK on Jan. 24.
