James Franco takes center stage as a man who sparks a desire for change in the first trailer for In Dubious Battle.

The film, which is based off of a 1936 novel of the same name, also stars Paper Towns actor Nat Wolff, and reunites Franco with his Spring Breakers co-star Selena Gomez.

The trailer does a great job of setting up the story about a crew of migratory workers who rise up to fight against the land owners continuously take advantage and slash their pays.



Franco plays Mac McLeod, a Party organizer who inspires others to fight for their rights and Wolf plays his right had man, Jim Nolan. Together, they embark on a journey to change things for millions.

“My old man worked these fields. He had the nerve to stand up and say they weren’t treating him right, and for that they shot him like a dog,” explains McLeod to his fellow workers at one point during the trailer. “So who are we? We’re the guys who are going to change all that.”

From there, we get a sweeping look at what happens when the workers, inspired by McLeod’s words, decide to fight back.

We’ll definitely be looking forward to heading out to see the inspiring tale come to life when In Dubious Battle finally hits theaters.

Also starring Bryan Cranston, Ashley Greene, Josh Nutcherson, and Ed Harriss, In Dubious Battle premieres later this year.
