Open Road Films has released their first poster for their upcoming biopic MARSHALL, starring Chadwick Boseman as legendary attorney and future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall! Check it out down below!

Marshall is based on a true incident in the life of Thurgood Marshall (Boseman), when he was a young lawyer, long before his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. As the nation teeters on the brink of WWII, a nearly bankrupt NAACP sends Marshall to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder. In need of a high profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad),  a young Jewish lawyer who has never tried a case. Marshall and Friedman struggle against a hostile storm of fear and prejudice, driven to discover the truth in the sensationalized trial which helped set the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement to come.

Also starring Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell, Sterling K. Brown, and Keesha Sharp.

Reginald Hudlin directs. Paula Wagner produces through her Chestnut Ridge Productions banner with Jonathan Sanger and Hudlin.

Marshall hits theaters on October 13.
