Fruitvale Station Trailer

Fruitvale Station Trailer: A Violent True Story Comes to the Big Screen

Since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, indie drama Fruitvale Station has been generating a lot of positive buzz, and we've finally got a trailer to go along with the rave reviews. Michael B. Jordan stars in the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old San Francisco Bay Area resident who was fatally shot by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police in the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2009. Even from this small clip, the tension in the film is palpable as a fight breaks out on the train headed from Oakland toward San Francisco. Octavia Spencer also stars as Oscar's mother.

In real life, Grant's tragic death was highly publicized, having been captured on multiple cell phone cameras — a detail included in the trailer. I've watched Jordan in both Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, and he's one of my favorite up-and-coming actors, so I'm excited to see his turn on the big screen, as heart-wrenching as his role may be. Fruitvale Station opens in limited release on July 12, but definitely watch the gripping trailer after the jump.
