Prepare yourself for serious goosebumps after watching James Franco and Selena Gomez in the newest trailer for In Dubious Battle.
Although In Dubious Battle was released last year at a few different film festivals, it is just now making its way to the mainstream market and we’re really excited about it.
The film, which is directed by Franco, is about making a change and fighting the good fight.
From the beginning of the trailer we learn that Robert Duvall’s character’s main goal is to get as much labor for as little as possible. The film takes place in the 1930s when every year hundreds of workers head to the California valley to work as apple pickers.
When they arrive they either get the work, or they learn quickly that the wage has been cut in half. This is the issue Franco’s character Mac, along with Nat Wolff’s character Jim, hope to end.
Throughout the teaser you see good people banning together to get what they deserve… a proper wage and money to survive.
There are fires, and fear in their hearts as they battle “the man” and work to pick apples, make money and stay alive. It’s intense and totally powerful at the same time.
“Rise and fight for what you believe in,” the trailer reads as images of normal workers standing up to a few rotten men flash on the screen.
The film also stars Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston, and more.
If there is one thing you takeaway from this film-festival success, it’s that the price of real change is worth it… or at least we hope it is.
In Dubious Battle is set to be released (or available on DVD) in March 2017.
