Watch the First Trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s Star-Studded ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’

Aaron Sorkin’s much-hyped historical drama The Trial of the Chicago 7 has gotten its first trailer. Netflix unveiled the trailer for the film last night (September 13) ahead of its premiere on the streaming platform on October 16th. Watch it below.

Boasting a star-studded cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, Jeremy Strong, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the film depicts the events surrounding the 1968 Democratic National Convention, when a peaceful protest unraveled into a violent clash with police officers and the National Guard. Seven of the organizers, including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot, which led to one of the most infamous trials in U.S. history.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 marks Sorkin’s follow-up to his 2017 directorial debut, Molly’s Game.
