The second official trailer for Free State of Jones offers a leaner, more focused look at the film than the first trailer did. This trailer opens as Newton Knight (Matthew McConaughey) laments, "It ain't just for us. Black, white, rich, poor - it's for everybody." Guns are loaded and the stage is set for an epic battle.


Based on a true story, the film (and this trailer) showcases Newton and his army of poor farmers and runaway slaves who band together to resist the Confederate movement. The rebellion leads to the "Free State of Jones," a county in Mississippi, and in the words of Newton, is spurred for "our children and our children's children." Dramatic fight sequences and images of families being torn apart and reunited round out this glimpse of the wartime picture.
