"Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman tries to free an innocent man in the new trailer for the 1940s legal thriller "Marshall," based on a landmark criminal case that was handled by a young NAACP lawyer named Thurgood Marshall, a civil rights pioneer who, three decades later, would become the first African-American Supreme Court Justice.

Boseman portrays the young Marshall in the film, which also stars "This Is Us" Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown as a wrongfully imprisoned African-American chauffeur who's on trial for sexually assaulting and attempting to murder his employer, a wealthy white socialite (played by Kate Hudson).

Josh Gad (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast) plays assistant attorney Samuel Friedman, who was chosen by Marshall to try the case because the judge didn't allow Marshall to speak in his courtroom.

Filmmaker Reginald Hudlin (House Party, Boomerang), who produced Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," directs the movie from a script co-written by acclaimed screenwriter Jacob Koskoff (2015's Macbeth) and his father, notable attorney Michael Koskoff.

Co-starring Dan Stevens, Keesha Sharp, Jussie Smollett, Sophia Bush, and James Cromwell, "Marshall" arrives in theaters October 13th.

synopsis:
Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, MARSHALL, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days -- a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.
