Such an dynamic trailer – with a fall season release date, expect to see awards buzz for such a powerful film. Acting, directing, writing, producing categories, including the technical categories for cinematography, costumes, hair and makeup, and production design, with score and song to round out the possible nominations.
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.
The film has a top notch production team.
Directed by Reginald Hudlin, Marshall is produced by Paula Wagner, Jonathan Sanger ( The Elephant Man, Vanilla Sky, Flight Of The Navigator), and Reginald Hudlin. It is written by Jake Koskoff and Michael Koskoff.
Hudlin co-produced the 88th Academy Awards ceremony in 2016 and was one of the producers of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture for the film.
Paula Wagner launched Cruise/Wagner Productions (C/W) with her former CAA client Tom Cruise. C/W went on to produce such critically acclaimed films as The Others, The Last Samurai, Vanilla Sky, Without Limits, Shattered Glass, Narc, Elizabethtown, and Ask the Dust, as well as Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds (which Wagner executive produced). C/W was responsible for the original Mission: Impossible film trilogy (Mission: Impossible 2 and Mission: Impossible III).
Open Road Films will release Marshall on October 13, 2017. Mark it on your calendar now.

In a disappointing bit of news for all of the once-beloved sci-fi franchises out there that haven’t felt the loving embrace of a big-budget revival, J.J. Abrams recently told People that he’s getting out of the reboot game. He’ll still be making movies, but he no longer has “any desire” to resurrect the things he once loved as a kid the way he did for Star Trek and Star Wars. That means we’ll never get to see Abrams put his fresh-yet-reverent spin on stuff like Flight Of The Navigator, The Last Starfighter, Zardoz, John Carter, Star Trek again, that Exosquad cartoon, Enemy Mine, and maybe Star Trek a third time.
Regarding his history of reboots, Abrams says he’s “done enough of that,” and that he’s now “more excited about working on things that are original ideas that perhaps one day someone else will ...
