RICHARD JEWELL – Official Trailer [HD]

The World Will Know His Name and the Truth. Only in Theaters December 13!
Directed by Clint Eastwood and based on true events, “Richard Jewell” is a story of what happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth.

“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.

The film stars Oscar winners Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) as Watson Bryant and Kathy Bates (“Misery,” TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Richard’s mom, Bobi; Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver”) as the lead FBI investigator; Olivia Wilde (“Life Itself”) as Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Kathy Scruggs; and Paul Walter Hauser (“I, Tonya”) stars as Richard Jewell.

Oscar winner Eastwood directed from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Billy Ray (“Captain Phillips”), based on the Vanity Fair article “American Nightmare—The Ballad of Richard Jewell” by Marie Brenner. Eastwood also produced under his Malpaso banner, alongside Tim Moore, Jessica Meier, Kevin Misher, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson and Jonah Hill.

Eastwood’s creative team includes director of photography Yves Bélanger and production designer Kevin Ishioka, along with longtime costume designer Deborah Hopper and Oscar-winning editor Joel Cox (“Unforgiven”), who have worked with Eastwood throughout the years on numerous projects. The music is by Arturo Sandoval, who scored 2018’s “The Mule.”

Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a Malpaso Production, an Appian Way/Misher Films/75 Year Plan Production, “Richard Jewell.” The film will be in theaters on December 13, 2019 and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

    My parents and I just watched this on Netflix. Gotta thank Clint Eastwood for telling Richard Jewell’s story as it should be told. Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell and Kathy Bates were all Oscar worthy. This film is ballsy in calling out the media and FBI for how they botched this investigation and ruined an innocent man’s life because they couldn’t accept that they were wrong.

    Respect hero Richard Jewell and that attorney. I remembered that bombing , I was a kid in Türkiye , a Turkish Tv reporter died by heart attack there too (R.I.P.) It was reported that he got heart attack because of chaos.

    Worst part he was accused of exact thing he was trying to prevent….. When he was supposed to hailed a hero you treated him like a terrorist

    Everybody remembers how he was falsely accused nobody remembers when his name was finally cleared

    The terrifying part about false accusations is that while the suspect is struggling to prove they are innocent, the real criminal could just walk away and potentially do worse crimes after the steam has set down.

    I know that Richard Jewell had health issues, but I still believe that he would have lived at least a few years longer had he been treated like the hero that he really was.

    Nearly three years later, this trailer still just hits so deep. Clint Eastwood films are really like no other – and the trailers for them, consistently, are just chills-inducing.

    I cannot even imagine the amount of pain they put him through. I think few people can return from a false accusation. It shatters your belief in everything. I overcame MANY traumatic things in my life but living a way smaller false accusation & having to disprove what an evil organization was claiming, was something I haven't been able to overcome. I can't watch this without feeling his pain.
