*The slow build toward the debut of director Ava DuVernay‘s first big budget film, “Selma,” is beginning to quicken as major media outlets and independents alike are starting to pick up on the fact that this is shaping up to be a pretty kick ass movie.
We haven’t heard anyone say this is an ensemble film, but with a cast that includes David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Roth, Common, Giovonni Ribisi Andre Holland, Wendell Pierce and many others, Selma appears to have a high-quality cast from top to bottom. Recently, the first trailers for “Selma,” which is slated for limited release in December, were released.
Additionally, Duvernay and Oyelowo have been making their rounds to get the word out about “Selma,” which is executive produced by Oprah Winfrey in conjunction with Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company.
Check out the trailer below fora first glimpse of the film and take a look at EURweb.com’s video gleaned from the 18th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival and stay tuned for more installments of this candid conversation.
