Michael B. Jordan’s emotional courtroom drama, Just Mercy, is coming home this April, as Warner Bros. has revealed.
If you missed out on Just Mercy when it hit theaters this past December or are eager to check it out once again, you’ll get your chance pretty soon. Warner Bros. has announced the home entertainment release details for the film this afternoon. The digital version of the film will hit on March 24th, with the physical blu-ray hitting on April 14, 2020.
Based on the true story of a hero, “Just Mercy” arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (“The Glass Castle,” “Short Term 12”), from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on Bryan Stevenson’s bestselling memoir.
“Just Mercy” is based on the powerful and thought-provoking true story of young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie 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 main 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, as well as overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them.
