Harriet Tubman's Inspirational True Story Comes to the Big Screen in the Trailer For Harriet
A first look at Cynthia Erivo in the Harriet Tubman biopic has arrived, and it's thrilling, to say the least. In the trailer for Harriet, we see the Widows actress as the legendary American freedom fighter, who traveled over 100 miles to the north to escape slavery and the vindictive man who she was forced to work under. But after experiencing freedom herself, Harriet vows to return to the south to help free hundreds of slaves via the Underground Railroad. In addition to Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Janelle Monáe, Joe Alwyn, Jennifer Nettles, and Clarke Peters also star. Watch the trailer for the film above before it arrives in theaters on Nov. 1.
