CHICAGO (CBS) — Chance the Rapper announced Friday on Twitter that he bought out two movie theaters in Chicago for the day for people to go see the movie, “Marshall.”
“It’s all day, but the later it gets, the more people talk about it, the more seats get filled, but yea come to the one at 3. I’m good at surprises and stuff,” Chance wrote in the tweet.
Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell, ‘Marshall’ is based on “an early trial in the career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. It follows the young lawyer to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer. Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer, Samuel Friedman. Together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and Anti-Semitism. The high profile case and the partnership with Friedman served as a template for Marshall’s creation of the NAACP legal defense fund,” the movie’s website reads. The movie is directed by Reginald Hudlin.
