West of Memphis

Sony Classics has released a new trailer for Academy Award nominated director Amy Berg's documentary "West of Memphis," opening in select theaters on December 25, 2012.

The documentary centers around the West Memphis Three: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, who were tried and convicted by the State of Arkansas in 1993 for the murders of three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. 
 
Wrongly imprisoned for eighteen years, the three convicts were eventually brought to justice and released when Academy Award winning team Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh financed private investigators and forensic testing in search of the truth. The new "West of Memphis" trailer is a showcase for this spectacular story, supplemented by research, interviews with those involved in the 1993 case and a palpable desire to acknowledge that the true killer of those young Arkansas boys remains free to this day.
 
Catch the new trailer below.
