Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer to director Ava DuVernay’s MLK film ‘Selma,’ which will have a limited release in the U.S. on Christmas day and will open wide on January 9, 2015.
Along with the trailer is the lyric video for Common and John Legend’s original song “Glory”, which was written for the film. The music has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Song In a Film.
“SELMA” is the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people – a dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and led to President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The film’s release will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the landmark legislation.
