Marshall Trailer

"If you want freedom, you're going to have to fight for it." Open Road Films has released the first official trailer for a film titled Marshall, telling the fascinating and inspiring story of the first African American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Chadwick Boseman, who also plays Black Panther, stars as Thurgood Marshall in this compelling drama about Marshall when he was a "young rabble-rousing" attorney for the NAACP during the 1940s and 1950s. The full cast in the film includes Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell. This looks like a rousing, inspiring story of a determined, intelligent man fighting against racism and society to stand for justice above all. Might be good.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Reginald Hudlin's Marshall, direct from YouTube:

Marshall Movie Poster

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. Marshall is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder. Marshall is directed by filmmaker Reginald Hudlin, of the films House Party, Boomerang, The Great White Hype, The Ladies Man, Serving Sara, and lots of other TV work previously. The screenplay is written by Jacob Koskoff and Michael Koskoff. Open Road Films will release Reginald Hudlin's Marshall in select theaters starting October 13th later this fall. Who's interested in this?

Can Hollywood please stop with the white-guilt apologetic propaganda? It's boring.

Can't. Too much pointlessness pricking my eyes.

So history is propaganda now? Oh and why would you feel guilty?...Let you racist undertones rage through...

And of course all films are 100% accurate and have no element of exaggeration or bias present within them...

Well I guess now that the chances of securing an Oscar have been greatly improved, it's worth banging some more of these out.

Shut up.

This was an important period in American history. We need more films like this, because sadly, when you juxtapose these inspirational films with the current reality, you'll see that institutionalized racism is still a major part of life....

Hmm, think I just became lil more excited for this than "Black Panther".

The trailer looks great. Boseman is a rising talent.

Not likely to be good as Hidden Figures, but still, I always liked those kind of films about racial injustice. In fact, about and against any injustice ...

dude... is Boseman like the bio man now? James Brown? Jackie Robinson? Thurgood Marshall?

Duane on Jun 22, 2017


Well, he's got the acting skills to play them all. Love the Boseman.
