The first trailer has been released for Mudbound, based on Hillary Jordan's novel. Indiewire reported that director Dee Rees "is best known for her indie breakout Pariah, but she's about to earn a massive new following thanks to Mudbound. The movie premiered to major acclaim at Sundance earlier this year, where it sold to Netflix in a $12.5 million deal."
The cast includes Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell, Mary J. Blige, Jonathan Banks and Garrett Hedlund. Netflix, which is planning an Oscar campaign, will debut the film on its streaming platform and in select theaters November 17.
