Trailer: The Trial of the Chicago 7 hits Netflix and UK cinemas this October
n 1968, with the whole world watching, democracy refused to back down. What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest — including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale — were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
This October, that trial is heading to our screens, with Netflix releasing The Trial of the Chicago 7. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, it boasts a star-studded cast, including Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Jeremy Strong, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Michael Keaton, John Carroll Lynch and Alex Sharp. You can see them all in action on 16th October, when the film hits Netflix worldwide, or, if you want to catch it on the big screen, at select UK cinemas from 1st October.
