One Night In Miami – December 25 (Limited Theatrical)
Actress Regina King has starred in some of the most important projects to comment on racial disparity as of late, such as Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series and If Beale Street Could Talk, which earned her her first Academy Award. She brings that same energy from behind the camera with her feature-length directorial debut, One Night in Miami.
The historical drama, which will be given a limited theatrical release on Christmas Day before premiering on Amazon Prime Video in January, is based on a stage play of the same name by the co-director of Soul, Kemp Powers, that, as the title suggests, takes place over the course of one night in the 1960s as four prominent Civil Rights activists discuss their roles in the movement. The all-star cast includes Kingsley Ben-Adir as Malcolm X, Aldis Hodge as Jim Brown, Eli Goree as Muhammad Ali, and Leslie Odom Jr. as Sam Cooke.
