STX Films have dropped a new trailer for the Benedict Cumberbatch headlined The Mauritanian.
Captured by the U.S. Government, Mohamedou Ould Slahi languishes in prison for years without charge or trial. Losing all hope, Slahi finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander and her associate Teri Duncan. Together they face countless obstacles in a desperate pursuit for justice. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch, eventually reveals a shocking and far reaching conspiracy. Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir, this is the explosive true story of a fight for survival against all odds.
Directed by Kevin Macdonald, based upon the book “Guantanamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, the film also stars Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim, Zachary Levi, Saamer Usmani and Shailene Woodley.
The film is set for release on February 19, 2021.
