Netflix are on a roll. While cinematic releases are getting pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the streaming service is delivering weekly movies. And these aren't B-grade flicks – they're star-studded affairs such as The Devil All the Time, Enola Holmes, and I'm Thinking of Ending Things.
Later this year, on October 16, The Trial of the Chicago 7 joins Netflix, and it promises to be another exhilarating, timely watch featuring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. The trailer has just been released – watch above.
Sacha Baron Cohen leads the cast which also includes *deep breath* Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Jeremy Strong, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Michael Keaton, John Carroll Lynch and Alex Sharp.
The Trial of the Chicago 7 tells the story of the 1968 Democratic National Convention that turned into a violent clash between the police and National Gaurd. The organisers of the protest, which was intended to be peaceful, were charged for conspiracy to incite a riot. Sorkin focuses on the instigators – Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale – as they fight the power in the notorious trial.
