Netflix has debuted a new trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s star-studded feature ‘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 Aaron Sorkin, the film stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Jeremy Strong, Frank Langella, Michael Keaton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and J.C. Mackenzie.
