Netflix Drops Trailer for ‘Rustin’ Starring Colman Domingo

This morning, Netflix unveiled the trailer for Rustin, likely one of their big awards players this year. Colman Domingo stars in the film as activist Bayard Rustin, who’s never gotten a cinematic showcase until now. George C. Wolfe directs, with the cast around Domingo including Chris Rock, Glynn Turman, and more. The movie will be released in select theaters on November 3rd (after playing the fall film festivals), before hitting Netflix on November 17th.

The synopsis from Netflix is as follows:

The architect of 1963’s momentous March on Washington, Bayard Rustin was one of the greatest activists and organizers the world has ever known. He challenged authority, never apologized for who he was, what he believed, or who he desired. And he did not back down. He made history, and in turn, he was forgotten. Directed by DGA Award and five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe and starring Emmy Award winner Colman Domingo, Rustin shines a long overdue spotlight on the extraordinary man who, alongside giants like the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., Adam Clayton Powell Jr., and Ella Baker, dared to imagine a different world, and inspired a movement in a march toward freedom. Produced by Academy Award winner Bruce Cohen, Higher Ground’s Tonia Davis and George C. Wolfe, the film features an all-star cast including Chris Rock, Glynn Turman, Aml Ameen, Gus Halper, CCH Pounder, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Johnny Ramey, Michael Potts, with Jeffrey Wright and Audra McDonald.

Here now is the trailer for Rustin:

I’m not the biggest fan of George C. Wolfe as a filmmaker but I also think that Colman Domingo is quite literally incapable of being less than riveting on screen.
