Michael B. Jordan Fights for Jamie Foxx in 'Just Mercy' Trailer - Watch!

Michael B. Jordan fights for justice for Jamie Foxx in the new trailer for their film Just Mercy.

The actors, ages 32 and 51, respectively, team up in the upcoming drama.

Here’s the synopsis: “A powerful and thought-provoking true story, Just Mercy follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson).”

It continues, “One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them.”

Just Mercy – based on the book by Bryan Stevenson – is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and also stars Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Karan Kendrick.

The film arrives in select theaters on December 25 and everywhere on January 10.
