‘Trial of the Chicago 7’ Trailer: Netflix Teases Aaron Sorkin’s Film

Published

on

The awards season hopeful featuring an outrageously starry cast will debut on the platform October 16.

Netflix has a mighty arrow in its awards quiver this season with the release of writer/director Aaron Sorkin’s long-in-the-works drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” dropping on the platform October 16. The streamer unveiled a first teaser for the film during the LA Rams/Dallas Cowboys Sunday Night Football game. Watch below.

The film boasts one of this year’s most impressive casts, including Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, Jeremy Strong, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. “Chicago 7” chronicles how the peaceful protest outside the 1968 Democratic Convention unraveled into a fatal clash with police officers and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest — including Abbie Hoffman (Cohen), Jerry Rubin (Strong), Tom Hayden (Redmayne), and Bobby Seale (Abdul-Mateen) — were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.

The cast of “The Trial of the Chicago 7” also includes Mark Rylance, John Carroll Lynch, Ben Shenkman, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Danny Flaherty. It arrives just ahead of the election on November 3. The streamer bought Sorkin’s film from Paramount for a reported $56 million, but the project has been in the works for more than a decade, with directors including Steven Spielberg and Paul Greengrass once rumored to be attached.

According to a Vanity Fair first look at the movie from over the summer, Cohen had strong words in teasing the film. “[Sorkin is] as talented as Shakespeare. And a lot more consistent,” he said. “He hasn’t had a ‘Titus Andronicus.’”

Strong was reportedly a die-hard method actor while on set, going to extremes to let the riotous atmosphere of the period seep into him. According to Sorkin, while filming riot scenes on location in Chicago’s Grant Park, Strong demanded that an ex-cop starring as a storm trooper in the movie throw him to the ground before each take. “Jeremy begged me to spray him with real tear gas,” said Sorkin, who declined to do so.

Check out the first teaser for “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” This is Aaron Sorkin’s second film as a director, after only “Molly’s Game,” but he is an Oscar winner for Best Adapted Screenplay for David Fincher’s “The Social Network.”

Southern Charm: Season Seven Premiere Teased by Bravo

Published

By

Last season, ABC’s 20/20 news program dropped slightly in the ratings but the series had much smaller declines than most other shows on television. After so many years, it’s hard to imagine that 20/20 will be cancelled anytime soon but, the network could certainly change things up to try to attract more viewers. Will the series be renewed “as is” for season 44? Stay tuned.

A primetime news magazine series, the 20/20 TV show is anchored by journalists David Muir and Amy Robach. Correspondents include Juju Chang, John Quiñones, Deborah Roberts, Brian Ross, Diane Sawyer, and Jay Schadler. Created by Roone Arledge in June 1978, the program combines investigative news reports with human interest stories and other features. The venerable series’ name is derived from the 20/20 measurement of visual acuity.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

9/26 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page or view it here.

For comparisons: Season 42 of 20/20 on ABC averaged a 0.55 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.34 million viewers.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

 

What do you think? Do you like the 20/20 TV series on ABC? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a 44th season?

It looks like the two actors really got along on set and Tom Cruise inspired Glen Powell’s own need for speed. Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who also worked with Tom Cruise in Oblivion and helmed Tron: Legacy for Disney in 2010. The sequel is now coming out on July 2, 2021 instead of its previous date at the end of 2020 due to continued theatrical date shifts.
