Netflix have debuted the second and main Trailer for civil rights true life drama Rustin.
The last time we had a trailer for George C.Wolfe’s film it was about to make it’s world premiere at Toronto Film Festival. As you’ll see from the actual trailer there is many quotes letting us know we have a great historical drama on the cards like Selma?
Time to own the power and Bayard Rustin (played by Colman Domingo)was the man challenged authority. The Architect of the 1963 historic civil rights march which Martin Luther King ‘I Had A Dream‘ speech. He was also a black man fighting against not just racism but also homophobia.
The architect of 1963’s momentous March on Washington, Bayard Rustin was one of the greatest activists and organizers the world has ever known. He challenged authority, never apologized for who he was, what he believed, or who he desired. And he did not back down. He made history, and in turn, he was forgotten. Directed by DGA Award and five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe and starring Emmy Award winner Colman Domingo, Rustin shines a long overdue spotlight on the extraordinary man who, alongside giants like the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., Adam Clayton Powell Jr., and Ella Baker, dared to imagine a different world, and inspired a movement in a march toward freedom. Produced by Academy Award winner Bruce Cohen, Higher Ground’s Tonia Davis and George C. Wolfe.
The cast for this one is massive, Chris Rock, Glynn Turman, Aml Ameen, Gus Halper, CCH Pounder, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Johnny Ramey, Michael Potts, Lilli Kay, Jordan-Amanda Hall, Jakeem Powell, Grantham Coleman, Jamilah Rosemond, Jules Latimer, Maxwell Whittington-Cooper, Frank Harts, Kevin Mambo, Carra Patterson, Bill Irwin, Cotter Smith, Adrienne Warren, with Jeffrey Wright and Audra McDonald.
