Warner Bros. has announced it is making its 2019 legal drama “Just Mercy” available for FREE on digital platforms such as Amazon and the Apple TV app throughout June.
Based on a powerful true story, the 2019 legal drama stars Michael B. Jordan as Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson, a defense attorney appealing the wrongful murder conviction of an African-American man. The film also stars Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson and was directed by filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton.
Warner Bros. is hoping the Michael B. Jordan-starring drama can be used as an educational tool to help people learn more about systemic racism in American society.
According to the studio, “We believe in the power of story. ‘Just Mercy’ is one resource we can offer to those who are interested in learning more about the systemic racism that plagues our society. For the month of June, ‘Just Mercy’ will be available to rent for FREE across digital platforms in the U.S.”
“Just Mercy” grossed $50 million worldwide and earned Foxx a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. Add this to your upcoming movie list this month and see it for free.
