Netflix dropped the trailer for upcoming movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 over the weekend. Starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and more, the film is based on a true story and directed by Aaron Sorkin.
Here’s a quick synopsis courtesy of the streaming site:
“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.”
