This Is How You Do a Movie Trailer

In case you've been underground, the trailer for director Ryan Coogler's Black Panther hit recently and it was everything dreams are made of, and puts Chadwick Boseman at the forefront where he should always remain. I thought the actor would have more than enough to juggle given the ginormity of playing the title character of an iconic superhero on the big screen, but today brought MARSHALL to my attention, in which he plays the the title character again, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Blending modern hip-hop tunes, endless swag that connects Marshall's character to today's contemporary idols and activists, and a stellar cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Josh Gad, and James Cromwell, this trailer for MARSHALL is cute extraordinarily well. My body is ready.

Here's the 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.
Watch the trailer:

MARSHALL opens in theaters October 13.
