On the heels of its rousing LAFF screening last night, The Weinstein Company has released a brand new poster for Ryan Coogler’s multiple award-winning feature film debut, Fruitvale Station, which is based on the 2009 murder of 22-year old Oscar Grant (played by Michael B. Jordan), and which co-stars Octavia Spencer, Kevin Durand and Melonie Diaz, with Forest Whitaker producing.
The film is set for a July 12 theatrical release. I expect an initial major-market roll-out before a gradual, broader screen expansion.
Zeba Blay reviewed Fruitvale Station for S&A after screening it at Sundance; In short, she dug it. Read that review HERE.
