Free State of Jones Trailer

"For our children, and their children's children." Fight the power! STX Entertainment has released the second trailer for Civil War action thriller Free State of Jones, about the story of a Southern farmer who rebelled against the Confederacy. Recent Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey plays Newton Knight; he's joined by a cast featuring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keri Russell, Jacob Lofland, Mahershala Ali and Sean Bridgers. The first trailer for this film was pretty solid, and this one is also an engaging and emotional trailer. There's tons of action in this one, which they seem to be playing up in hopes of drawing in some audience. This is an interesting film to compare to The Birth of a Nation, which isn't set during the Civil War but also deals with a resistance movement, though this film seems to have a much bigger budget.

Here's the second official trailer for Gary Ross' Free State of Jones, direct from YouTube:

You can also still watch the first trailer for Free State of Jones here, to compare the footage.

An epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War. Free State of Jones is both written & directed by veteran filmmaker Gary Ross, director of the films Pleasantville, Seabiscuit and The Hunger Games previously, screenwriter on Dave, Mr. Baseball and Big. STX Ent. will release Gary Ross' Free State of Jones in theaters everywhere starting May 13th, 2016 this year. You in?
