Thurgood Marshall was “just a man with a mission.” So says the just-released trailer for Open Road Films’ “Marshall,” before he became the country’s first African-American supreme court justice and before he won Brown v. Board of Education, desegregating schools.

Chadwick Boseman will step into Marshall’s sizable shoes in the film, which is slated for an awards-ready Oct. 13 release. Starring alongside him will be Sterling K. Brown, Josh Gad, and Kate Hudson, with direction in the hands of Reginald Hudlin of “Django Unchained.”
