Matthew McConaughey Stars in First 'Free State of Jones' Civil War Drama Trailer - Watch Now!

Matthew McConaughey takes us back in time in this action-packed first look at his upcoming movie Free State of Jones.

Also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Keri Russell, the movie is 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 hits theaters on May 13!
