‘Fruitvale Station’: Michael B. Jordan and Octavia Spencer star in haunting new trailer

'Fruitvale Station' Poster The new trailer for Ryan Coogler’s Sundance award-winning film, Fruitvale Station, has been released online and it looks incredible.

The film is based on a true story and stars Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights, Chronicle) as Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old San Francisco Bay Area man whose 2009 shooting by Oakland BART police sparked outrage and protests in the city.

The official synopsis reads:

FRUITVALE STATION follows the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer), whose birthday falls on New Year’s Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz), who he hasn’t been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter. Crossing paths with friends, family, and strangers, Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year’s Day. Oscar’s life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area – and the entire nation – to its very core.

Fruitvale Station, which received a standing ovation at Cannes, will be released in theaters on July 12.
