ABC/Craig SjodinMichael B. Jordan dropped a teaser on Tuesday for his legal drama Just Mercy, co-starring Jamie Foxx.
In the clip, we see Jordan in his role as attorney Bryan Stevenson, and Foxx as his client Walter McMillian, a young black man sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit. The caption reads, “This is about all of us.”
As previously reported, the film is based on Stevenson’s 2014 New York Times best-selling memoir of the same name. Just Mercy chronicles the real-life story of the civil right activist who founded the Equal Justice Initiative.
The film also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. from Straight Outta Compton, Mudbound’s Rob Morgan and Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson.
A full trailer will be released Wednesday.
Just Mercy will open in select theaters on December 25, followed by a nationwide release on January 10, 2020.
