Fruitvale Station, Ryan Coogler’s multiple award-winning Sundance Film Festival drama, was acquired by The Weinstein Company and will be released on July 12.
Based on the 2009 murder of 22-year old Oscar Grant, the film stars Michael B. Jordan, who is joined by Octavia Spencer, Kevin Durand and Melonie Diaz, with Forest Whitaker producing.
Anticipation is high for this one, and July 12 can’t come soon enough, I’m sure.
An awards season push by TWC is also very likely.
Zeba Blay reviewed Fruitvale Station for S&A after screening it at Sundance; In short, she dug it. Read that review HERE.
Not much else to say, except, get excited, because here’s your first good look at the good-looking film (you’ll find the first poster underneath as well):
