Free State of Jones – Brand New Trailer!

Alright, alright, alright…

Sorry, I just assumed that from now on, every single piece of Matthew McConaughey news. Admit it, the southern drawl phrase from the actor’s acclaimed Magic Mikemovie certainly popped in your head. Jokes aside, we’re excited to see him go from strength to strength and the trailer for his new action drama film is intensely superb.

Based on the true story of Newton Knight, the film revolves around a poor farmer in Mississippi who lead a small group of farmers and local slaves against the Confederacy in the Civil War, establishing a mixed-race community.

While it’s somewhat frustrating that movies tend to look at the white heroes of history, there is something interesting here and the trailer is utterly enthralling. Gary Ross helms this movie and you may remember that name as the shaky hand-cam creator of The Hunger Games. Hmmmm…

What do you think?
