Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, and Brie Larson star in the historical drama Just Mercy, which released its first trailer today.
Based on Bryan Stevenson’s book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, the film follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (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 (Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (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 is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton. The main cast also includes Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Karan Kendrick.
The film is scheduled for release on December 25, 2019. Watch the full trailer above!

DeWanda Wise Joins Jurassic World 3 in a Lead Role
by Kimberly Jones
DeWanda Wise, star of the Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It, is gearing up to take on a new role after the series was canceled earlier this year. Wise has been cast in a leading role in the upcoming Jurassic World 3 scheduled for a June 2021 release.
The highly anticipated third installment of the franchise is the follow up to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom released in 2018. The plot for Jurassic World 3 has yet to be released but Fallen Kingdom ended with the dinosaurs roaming freely to take over the world. Wise will join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard who are reprising their roles from the previous films.
Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer along with Jurassic Park alum Laura Dern and Sam Neill. Both films from the franchise have made over $1 billion at the box office and Universal Pictures is hoping Jurassic World 3 can bring audiences into theatres for another box office hit.
DeWanda Wise recently starred in the Netflix romantic comedy Someone Great along with Gina Rodriguez and Brittany Snow and the independent film The Weekend.
Zoe Kravitz Cast As Catwoman
Big Little Lies star Zoe Kravitz has been tapped to play Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman in the upcoming Warner Bros.’ Batman movie.
Kravitz will star opposite Robert Pattinson as the Dark Night and Jonah Hill, who is rumored to join the project as either the Penguin or the Riddler.
Per People, the movie, directed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes), will focus on Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne in the early stages of his transformation into the Caped Crusader.
This marks Kravitz’s second Warner Bros. movie following Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, released in November 2018.
Pre-production is expected to start this summer. The Batman will hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
