24. College Grad. On the road to discovery

Pararmount has revealed a first look at Ava DuVernay’s upcoming film Selma, telling the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s (David Oyelowo) historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people - a dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and led to President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

This is our first look at Oyelowo (The Butler, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as Dr. King as well as some of the supporting members of the cast including (see below) Carmen Ejogo as Coretta Scott King. Additional cast members include Keith Stanfield, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson, Colman Domingo, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey, Giovanni Ribisi and Stephan James.

Paramount has already set a December 25 release for the film.
