In Theaters This Weekend: 'MARSHALL' featuring Chadwick Boseman (VIDEO)

Check out the trailer for “MARSHALL” starring “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman along with Sterling K. Brown and Josh Gad. The film opens in theaters this weekend and is directed by Reginald Hudlin.


“MARSHALL” focuses on a case that helped to define Thurgood Marshall’s career long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education. The story follows his courageous fight alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Gad) in the case of a black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Brown), who is being accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.


The film also stars former “Girlfriend’s” actress Keesha Sharp as Marshall’s wife, Vivien “Buster” Burey as well as “Empire” star Jussie Smollett as writer and poet Langston Hughes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas as Harlem Renaissance writer—Zora Neale Hurston. It also features appearances by singer Andra Day and famed civil rights attorney and host of TV One’s “Evidence of Innocence” Benjamin Crump.


“MARSHALL” was shot on location in Buffalo, NY.
