The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for Fruitvale Station, the award-winning, highly acclaimed indie film from Ryan Coogler, a USC graduate making his feature film debut. Starring Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle, Friday Night Lights), Fruitvale Station tells the true story of Oscar, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident, who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family, and strangers on New Year’s Eve.
Based on the real story of the shooting of Oscar Grant in San Francisco, Fruitvale Station also stars Melonie Diaz, Kevin Durand and Octavia Spencer.
You can watch the first official trailer for Coogler’s film below.
Coogler won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film is also scheduled to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. The Weinstein Company, who picked up the film for $2 million during Sundance, is planning to release Fruitvale Station in limited theaters starting on July 26, 2013.
