Second Trailer for Regina King's Acclaimed Film 'One Night in Miami'
"You need to understand what is at stake here." Amazon Prime Video has debuted a second official trailer for One Night in Miami, the outstanding film marking the narrative directorial debut of actress Regina King. What happens when Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke all find themselves in the same room? This is a fictional account of an evening in Miami in the 1960s, bringing together four greats who talk about their life and their accomplishments. Starring Eli Goree as Cassius Clay (aka Muhammad Ali), Kingsley Ben-Adir as Malcolm X, Leslie Odom Jr. as Sam Cooke, Aldis Hodge as Jim Brown; along with Lance Reddick, Christian Magby, Joaquina Kalukango, and Nicolette Robinson. This premiered to rave reviews at the Venice, Toronto, and New York Film Festivals last year, and it's one of my favorites. Expecting this to end up with tons of awards & noms this season. Available on Prime Video soon.
