Michael B. Jordan & Jaimie Foxx Team Up For New Film “Just Mercy”
Releasing in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020, this inspiring drama brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen.
Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther,” “Creed,” “Creed II”) and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx (“Ray,” “Baby Driver,” “Django: Unchained”) and Brie Larson (“Room,” “The Glass Castle,” “Captain Marvel”) star in the up and coming film “Just Mercy” which is based on the autobiography of World-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson works to free a wrongly condemned death row prisoner.
Releasing in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020, this inspiring drama brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen. Award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (“The Glass Castle,” “Short Term 12”) directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on the award-winning nonfiction bestseller by Bryan Stevenson.
Produced by Michael B. Jordan, this powerful and thought-provoking film follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson).
One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.
In September of 2019, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx appeared on The Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss teaming up for the coming film which was inspired by the true story of Bryan Stevenson. Watch as they break down how they handled a particularly dramatic emotional courtroom scene to bring the injustice of Walter McMillian to life.
“Just Mercy” will be in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020 and distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. (This film has been rated PG-13 for thematic content, including some racial epithets.)

Lecrae & 1K Phew Get Militant In New ‘MOVE’ Music Video
Lecrae & 1K Phew dropped their third single and music video for “MOVE” off of their joint project No Church in a While.
This latest song is a fan favorite track from the album! The music video was filmed in Atlanta, GA and was directed by Jerrell Green & Caleb Seales. The video features strong 90s nostalgia as 1K Phew and Lecrae recreate the drill sergeant scene inspired by the 1995 film, Major Payne, starring Damon Wayans and Karyn Parsons. In their interpretation of the scene, 1K Phew gets militant as he whips the Unashamed Army into shape while Lecrae puts them through the drills! Both artists bring high energy while a hint of humor is felt throughout the entire video as 1KPhew leans into his role as the drill sergeant.
Check out the video for “MOVE” and scroll down to view the full stream of Lecrae and 1K Phew’s No Church In A While.
Lecrae teamed up with 1K Phew for the joint effort No Church In A While IN December. The project contains 10 songs and a couple of features including WHATUPRG and Hulvey. This new album is high energy with a fresh cutting edge sound that rivals much of what is heard in traditional mainstream. We didn’t expect anything less from this duo.
