Denzel Washington plays a weary defense lawyer who falls into the clutches of a clogged criminal court system in the first trailer for "Roman J. Israel, Esq."

From Dan Gilroy, the Oscar-nominated writer and director of "Nightcrawler," the Los Angeles-set drama-thriller casts Washington as a once admired civil rights organizer and brilliant attorney who, after being fired from his firm, quickly becomes jaded with his profession.

"I'm tired of doing the impossible for the ungrateful, " Washington says in the above preview.

But when he is recruited by a smarmy L.A. lawyer (Colin Farrell) to join his high-powered law firm, Washington is immediately seduced by the money and notoriety -- until his past comes back to bite him.

Co-starring Carmen Ejogo (from "Alien: Covenant" and "Selma") and produced by Washington himself, "Roman J. Israel, Esq" is set to open in theaters November 3rd.
