I wish Shelby Foote were still alive to do a commentary for this film. He would have been an excellent contributor to this movie!

Good now Hollywood need to make a movie about the Bacon's Rebellion. A true story how both African and European were slaves that fought against the aristocrat of Virigina 1676. Notice how I never said black and white people as slaves, well do some research on history to find out. You might just find out who give us those terms, and created the social engineering concept called Race.\n\n\nI challenge Hollywood to even make a movie about white slaves! The other side of Trans Atlantic slavery!

I honestly think the trailer was good why y'all got beef with it? Like the funeral scene. That's probably not the only surprise tactic the characters use man. Also the kid dying isn't really a spoiler it makes sense to add it to the trailer
Alan Novaes
Whether you agree with the politics or not it's a damn good story and looks like an amazing movie and it really talks about the issue of southern people going out into the fields and dying by the thousands so the wealthy politicians and plantation owners can keep using slave labor while using the poor southerners as their pawns talking about states rights and it's good to see that there were some who knew better now I have full respect for those who fought for the confederacy even the generals in the civil war but the confederate politicians hell no they lied to the southern people and used them so they can keep their profit and that's disgusting

I saw this movie... it's fantastic.

What did President Lincoln say after his five day drunk?................\nI freed who?
Andrew Smith
Best movie I've seen in A LONG time. I highly recommend this. Words can't express how good it is.
ArianMas
Saw it today. Great great movie.
Arnab Chakraborty
Beautiful movie. I remember Will Smith saying on the late show, racism has always been there, but recently it is being noticed. What once people did to colored people in the name of racism and slavery, its shameful for humanity truly. Seems to me like only Mr.Lincoln had the balls to stand up and do something. And all racism coming back again, thanks to mr.orange hair. Well played United states.

So excited to see my family's story being told. What rich history we have but more importantly the acknowledgement of Newton's mixed race nation which is where I am most proud of -- Thank you Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Keri Russell as well as all the other actors for bringing this story to the public.
Betsy Linville
There is no way you see everything in the trailer. Historically, this story has many levels. I personally can't wait to see it.
BlacK DusK
i watched it today it was a great brilliance movie \ni don't know why it's underrated on imdb and i'm seeing a lot of haters in comment section \nthat make me believe that the most of americans don't accept their bloody history \ncome on guys! nothing changed \nyou still conquering & destroying every spot on the earth for ur f** rich ppl \nyou still writing the same history my friend, wake up
Brad Wiegman
Way to give away some key surprises in the trailer! That ambush scene would've been amazing to see in the movie... Now I don't even have a desire to see this movie because I feel like that was just a huge summary of the entire movie squeezed into 2:46. I'd rather you present the problem in the trailer and then leave a cliff hanger for us wanting to know the characters solution. Learn to make a trailer.
Bradley Smith
We takin' out some confederates? Alright-Alright-Alright
Brian Carver
I have studied the true story of Mr. Knight, and this film takes some very big liberties to turn him into a hero. It is true he was a disgruntled soldier, coming to believe the wealthy caused all his suffering (right from Marx's manifesto) and his personal loses in combat made him desert because he didn't want to die. He deserted and fled back to MS and along the way picked up others who were in the same boat. He figured the more the merrier, and strength in numbers. He was destitute, an uneducated man, and opposed authority because he believed the rich always tried to kill the poor. It has been said that it was the freed slaves who organized the \

interesting and way overdue to see \
Chris McDevitt
Looks so Good !! I can't wait to see it .
Christopher Grathwohl
Going to see this tomorrow
David Vazquez
I'd like to see a pro-Confederate movie for once.  Field of Lost Shoes was good, actually.
Dr Jacob Glückstein
The film is well done until I see an addition of a scene calling to vote Democratic. Yet this film shows that a free man has necessarily a weapon, he must protect his farm and not be crushed by the state and can not be said \
Dragon1717
This movie is not worth seeing. It's anti-White / anti-Southern Cultural Marxist garbage. And this is coming from a dude who lives in Chicago.
Dumbledoresarmy13
Thank God, finally a trailer that actually shows what the movie is about. I'm sick of seeing so many commercials for this film that just show a bunch of quotes saying how great it is and how great Matthew McConaughey is. If it weren't for the title and some confederate style uniforms in the trailer I might not have even known it was about the civil war before watching this video. Seriously. I don't know about everybody else, but I watch movies I think I'm going to like because the plot sounds interesting. Not because some other people thought it was good and there's a famous guy in it.
Ellie
Toooooooooooooooooo many spoilers in this trailer, what the hell!!!
Enilehcodram Ramlised
can't wait to see this one👍😏
Eric Kinney
Anyone notice a stark similarity between this and The Outlaw Josey Wales? Both depict former soldiers fleeing across the wilderness from military persecution (notice how both characters befriend their teenage comrades that are killed in the beginning) who form a friendship with people victimized by racial prejudice (escaped slaves / Lone Watie) and eventually make a stand against oppression by turning ordinary people into fighters.
Erich Fisher
McConaughey giving his best Rick grimes impression
GamerChameleon
This is neat. I'm a direct descendant of Newt Knight. My grandma has so many cool stories about this.
Glinkling Smearnops
I have not yet figured out the political agenda behind this film, but that won't prevent me from seeing it. It does bring up the issue of how fisiparous was the Confederacy. Grant the right of states to secede, why not counties? The whole theory of the Confederacy was slain by the ugly fact of its poor co-ordination between the states. As Jeffe4rson Davis himself concluded, the South 'died of a theory'.
GrapeDrank25
That's what I like bout them 19th century girls. I get older, they stay the same age, hehe yes they do.
Hailey Reaves
The trailer doesn't give the movie away, I mean it is history. Also, how does everything lead to racism? Why can't we watch a movie or anything without someone bringing that kind of stuff up? \nI cannot wait for this movie. I am from Jones county and a distant relative of Newt Knight.
Hannah Evans
The content of this movie is important but they already had me at Matthew Mc Coughnahey.
Horacio Blue Bottle
I love him as an actor but for the life of me I cannot understand a bloody word he says he just seems to mumble...Good film though...
Hugh Britten
Holy sh** i now have new found respect for southerns and the other side of those who fought for the CSA\nthank you Matt\nsounds like a amazing story
IronPiedmont1996
I'm proud of my Confederate Heritage, but I still would like to see this. After all, I like movies based on true stories.
James Gatlin
Because of slavery the poor white man had no job and had to starve because the cheap rich man wanted free labor. We fought against slavery way before the war started.

Juan Vargas
The Free State of Jones, dir Gary Ross. Mathew McConaughey, Gugu MBatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali. A heart-wrenching and unblinking look at a disgraceful time period in the history of the United States. In The Free State of Jones Mathew McConaughey delivers a poignant narration of an historical period of racism and man’s inhumanity to man. The ghastly manacles are highlighted and the camera pauses on a sight of a lynching long enough to dissuade any viewer from any laconic view of a disgraceful reminder of outright White on Black terrorist activity. The hatred as (expressed in lynchings), the suppression of the vote, the income inequality are cautionary tales of what our current president, Donald Trump can and is visiting upon the United States today. –JV.

Newt Knight is my great-great-great-great uncle. Thought his story would make a great movie for years. Glad to see Hollywood agree.

If The Patriot and Gettysburg had a baby. I'M EXCITED
KiljiArslan
Good to see the patriots of the south are finally being presented in film. Let it be known that there were men Loyal tour Union in the South who took up arms with the escaped against against the Slavers and their lackeys.
King OceanBlu
Trailer was amazing the ambush in the woods was awesome, some of the Raiders die, which set up the best part of the trailer..... The Ambush Out of the Coffin which was just Amazing!!! Can't wait to see this movie!!!
Liberators
Anyone got the name of the song in this trailer?
Lieutenant Dixon
it's a true shame they're making a movie about a, cowardly, traitorous, *murderer*

I'm related to the guy who this is about
Mad Rabbit
My family was involved in the Free State of Jones and they left in short order because Newt Knight wasn't nothing but a criminal who stole from the very people he claimed he was protecting.  The SOB needed to be hung.
Marion Greene
Just another attempt by the anti-Christian anti-Southern Hollywood to demonize The South. This agenda is getting old.
Mark IT Geek
Looks awesome. McConaughey is a great actor.
Miguelangel Barragan
Disappointed how more people went to go watch that shitty ghost busters film instead of this one. I'm losing my faith in people.
Mikhail Chudinov
CSA is evil again :(\nok people, let's sing!\nI wish I was in the land of cotton
Mini Maxi
McConaughey gave an interview about the movie to a New Orleans mag. He says that Free State of Jones takes the story into the period of Reconstruction and how Civil Rights and Voting Rights for black citizens should have been a given when the war ended, and were taken away by Confederate revenge groups organized by the rich planters... who are still in power today. Knight and his family had more trouble in Reconstruction than even during the Civil War as he had a black wife and biracial children.\n\nSo the trailer probably only covers the beginning of the story. I wouldn't worry too much about the whole movie being given away by the trailer.
Miryam Hernandez
It's true what he says.... Most wars are to make people richer and the poor poorer
Nick Andreas
Damn, this looks alright alright alright!!!!!!
Nikoloz Alavidze
The hell's wrong with you people! the movie is about a real person! historical figure! Maybe you'll blame Wikipedia and history book for \

This is southern heritage. Remember this.
PhiLadeLphia CoLLins
This was a GREAT MOVIE, in my opinion ... why this has not been talked about and hyped up more than it has is beyond me .... and I am speaking solely on the film itself, not the content of the film (before ppl start trying to point out inaccuracies and flaws) .... but in all seriousness, I RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE HIGHLY TO ANYONE WHO ENJOYS FILMS THAT GRAB YOU RIGHT FROM THE START .... VERY UNDERRATED FLICK ... and McConaughey is absolutely incredible I think too ✌ and ❤ everybody
Ramblin' Bob
Which was the only reason Newton Knight was able to successfully carry on fighting an insurgency so long, because all of his neighbors had gone to fight the war...

Is everybody here related to this guy? Holy crap I can tell some could be lies

basically, we saw the whole movie in the trailer, thanks i guess.

lol...anyone else noticed over the last few years theres been this push by hollywood and the media to create a villain out of the south...and southern history?

I'm being honest I was expecting a lot of negativity on here. I'm glad that's not the case

what's the song that starts at 0:32? it's just instrumental, but sounds like an intro to an actual song.
TheKersey475
The literal Civil War trailer :P
TheRepty818
Newton Knight was a truly fascinating person. I'm glad he's finally getting the credit he deserves. For the longest time people have romanticised Confederate generals who fought to divide the country and keep slavery, yet we ignore southerners who stood up for what was right.
TheStapleGunKid
How the hell did I not know about this man? I've been reading Civil war books and watching civil war movies for over 20 years and I've never head the name Newton Knight. This guy deserves a bigger place in history.

Wait wasn't John Brown a southerner? I'm mean he did try to inspire to revolt.

IM GONNA SEE THIS MOVIE. LONG LIVE THE SOUTH
WildwoodClaire1
Thousands of southern boys served the Union during the Civil War. Not one monument honors their memory anywhere. As a descendant of one of those boys, I am very excited about this film and pleased to know that someone, somewhere has FINALLY acknowledged the fact that not every southerner was a slave-owner or a servant of slave-owners who caused the Civil War in hopes of growing richer.

The Revenant just came out, and now Matthew McConaughey wants to steal the Oscar from Leonardo Dicaprio again.

crockett rocket
its incredible to see movies like this and just to think i can walk out my back door and i'm on the same battlefield, i grew up running through the same trails that has seen these years of war between the union & the confederate. i remember as a kid playing on the canons and attempting to leap from one trench to another, knowing in the back of my mind that soldiers were standing and laid where i once played.

juniatapark54
The editor wouldn't get the final say on how much to reveal. The market research told the producers/studio that potential audience members might see the movie as too preachy and historical so they needed an action/violence hook to get more people in.\nA valid decision even if it spoils the scene.
kajunmoon
my family was born and raised in Jones Co Ms it is not a propaganda film like it or not its the real deal..

There were also the Free State of Winston and the area around Nickajack in East Tennessee and North Alabama that tried to secede from the Confederacy.

why bother watching the film now, some company's haven't a clue how to make a trailer .
ogorjefan
Despite negative reviews saying this felt like history channel documentary i thought it was intriguing, interesting, educational and important film. It doesn't go into that blockbuster civil war cliches, it just describes more intimate, personal story which is driven by great motives and unity against the oppressors. \nGreat performances, good writing, interesting directing approach, subtle messages and much more it is truly mesmerizing movie. It doesn't insult, it doesn't stereotype, it is quality film and as a society we still have not evolved from limitations of our minds which are explored here. 4/5
