First Trailer for Clint Eatwood’s Richard Jewell has Arrived

The first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s upcoming drama based on the true story of Richard Jewell has arrived. Come inside to check it out!

The story of Richard Jewell is an interesting one (I remember seeing it unfold on the news myself back in 1996) and this film has had a long journey to the big screen. What’s REALLY crazy, however, is Clint Eastwood didn’t even START FILMING this until June 24, 2019. That’s right, just a few months ago. Yet somehow, it has a December release date AND a trailer that kicks ass:

These types of films aren’t always up my alley, and I haven’t been big on Eastwood in a while, but there’s no denying the tension and acting skill on display in this trailer. Consider me intrigued!

The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.

Richard Jewell is slated to hit theaters on December 15, 2019.
