Matthew McConaughey, The Free State of Jones

Trailer Time: Free State of Jones Trailer #2 (2016) *McConaughey Leads a Rebellion in a Rebellion*

STX Entertainment has just brought online a new Free State of Jones movie trailer and, in the player below, you can take a look at the upcoming Civil War action drama, starring Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar, Dallas Buyers Club). There are also several new Free State of Jones movie stills, all of which can be found in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page.

Written and directed by four-time Oscar nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), the Free State of Jones movie offers an epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.

The film co-stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), Keri Russell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Mahershala Ali (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, “House of Cards”). The film is being produced by Scott Stuber (Ted, Safe House) through his Blue Grass Films shingle, with Jon Kilik (Foxcatcher, The Hunger Games) producing through his Jon Kilik Productions, and Ross producing through his Larger Than Life Productions.

STX Entertainment will release the movie nationwide on June 24.
