JUST MERCY trailer – Michael B. Jordan wants justice for Jamie Foxx as Brie Larson watches

Seems like every few years, Hollywood delivers a new courtroom drama about a young lawyer trying to prove himself while taking on a challenging case. This year’s effort is JUST MERCY, based on the memoir by Bryan Stevenson. Michael B. Jordan plays Stevenson, who is tasked with defending Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), a man sentenced to death row for murder… but is he innocent? Destin Daniel Cretton (SHORT TERM 12) directs the film, which in addition to Jordan and Foxx also features Brie Larson, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Karan Kendrick. Check out the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Just Mercy shadows world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson as he recounts his experiences and details the case of a condemned death row prisoner whom he fought to free.

JUST MERCY starts in select theaters on December 25, 2019 – expanding January 10, 2020
