Denzel Washington, Viola Davis star in 'Fences' 2016 Film
Paramount has released the first dramatic trailer for Denzel Washington‘s big screen adaptation of Fences, based on August Wilson’s Tony award-winning play about struggle in the 1950s.

In the trailer, Washington reprises his Tony award-winning role as Troy Maxson, a promising baseball star turned garbage collector, who clashes with his son Cory (Jovan Adepo) over their strained relationship. Viola Davis also reprises her Tony award-winning role as Troy’s wife, Rose, who delivers an emotional exchange that will leave you reaching for a kleenex.

The film also stars Stephen McKinley Henderson, Russell Hornsby, Mykelti Williamson, and Saniyya Sydney.

Fences will open nationwide on Christmas Day, following a limited run in New York and LA on Dec. 16.
