‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ Trailer: The Whole World is Watching

Netflix has released an official teaser trailer for Aaron Sorkin‘s drama The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Looks pretty good. It’s nice to see Sacha Baron Cohen in a non-comedic role (I would still love to see his performance as Freddie Mercury). In addition to Cohen, this film has one hell of a cast (which you can see below).

The Trial of the Chicago 7 stars Sacha Baron Cohen as Abbie Hoffman, Eddie Redmayne as Tom Hayden, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Richard H. Shultz, William Hurt as John N. Mitchell, Mark Rylance as William Kunstler, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Bobby Seale, Jeremy Strong as Jerry Rubin, Frank Langella as Julius Hoffman, and Michael Keaton as Ramsey Clark.

Plot Synopsis:

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.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 begins streaming October 16, 2020 on Netflix.
