“Fruitvale Station,” the Sundance favorite well-known for making everyone cry, has a trailer. The clips showcase Michael B. Jordan‘s performance at the center of the film (spoilers in that link). In this based-on-a-true-story movie, Jordan plays Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old who finds himself entangled with police and street violence on New Years Eve in 2009. Fruitvale Station is a stop in the Bay Area’s subway system, the BART.
“Fruitvale Station” is directed and written by Ryan Coogler, produced by Forest Whitaker, and also stars Octavia Spencer, Melonie Diaz, and Chad Michael Murray. It will be released July 12, 2013. See the gorgeous poster, released earlier this week, here.
