The Trial of the Chicago 7 trailer shows the whole world is watching America
Written/Directed by Aaron Sorkin, The Trial of the Chicago 7 aims to tell the story of the defendants of the historical 1968 trial. It’s eerie how relevant and relatable a film about a trial over fifty years ago feels today. Aside from the cultural/historical relevance, I can’t think of a Sorkin film I didn’t like and this is yet another star-studded cast for the Netflix library. Needless to say, I’m excited for the movie. The film will be playing in select theaters this month (September) and will release on Netflix on October 16, 2020. With the theatrical release, the film is undoubtedly going for the Oscar. With the pure renown in front of and behind the camera, and with the deeply profound subject matter, I’m confident it will be in the running. Watch the trailer then continue below for the official Poster and film information from Netflix:

What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video. Fenix will be shooting and making videos here at FanboyNation.
