Netflix have dropped the first full trailer for Aaron Sorkin‘s The Trial of the Chicago 7.
What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
Written and directed by Academy Award® Winner Sorkin, the Oscar tipped film stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Jeremy Strong, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Michael Keaton, John Carroll Lynch and Alex Sharp.
The Trial of the Chicago 7 opens into selected big screens from October 1st as well as onto Netflix on October 16th, 2020.
