TrailersRise Up (The Birth of a Nation Official Trailer)

Keith NoakesJune 22, 2016

If you would like to read my thoughts on the first trailer, click here. As soon as I saw the teaser trailer a few months ago, it easily made it to my list of most anticipated movies of 2016. The obvious similarities to 12 Years a Slave are here but it seems like a lot more. While that movie was more about one person and their struggles, this one is about a slave in the South who orchestrated an uprising. This one definitely had its many award-worthy moments, whether or not it wins anything remains to be seen. I’m just fascinated by the fact that its star, Nate Parker, also wrote and directed the movie.┬áThe Birth of a Nation releases October 7th, 2016.
