Marshall Trailer 2

The second movie trailer for Marshall (2017) from Open Road Films.

Marshall plot summary from Imdb:

About a young Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, as he battles through one of his career-defining cases.

As my first exposure to the production, the second Marshall trailer leaves a good impression. It adequately conveys the premise of the film, something that many trailers fail to do with their fast-paced editing and incomprehensible action, as well as builds a suitable sense of momentum. This allows us to ease into the world of Chadwick Boseman‘s Marshall and feel like we are moving alongside him as the narrative develops.

What is really interesting about the trailer though is the nuanced approach it takes to the film’s central case. Although the story understandably focuses on the racial and political dimensions of Marshall representing a black client accused of rape and attempted murder, it does not gloss over the very real possibility that his client may actually be guilty. This shows that the movie is genuinely interested in exploring the myriad ethical questions surrounding the case and its implications, just as the real life Thurgood Marshall probably would be.

Reginald Hudlin‘s Marshall (2017) stars Chadwick Boseman, Dan Stevens, Sophia Bush, Kate Hudson, James Cromwell, Josh Gad, Sterling K. Brown, Jussie Smollett, Jeffrey DeMunn, Ahna O’Reilly, Jeremy Bobb, Marina Squerciati, Keesha Sharp, Barrett Doss, and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
