New ‘The Whole Truth’ Trailer with Keanu Reeves
Lionsgate has released the new trailer for The Whole Truth, the latest legal thriller from Frozen River director Courtney Hunt.
Starring Keanu Reeves, Renee Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jim Belushi, and newcomer Gabriel Bosso, the film has already opened in Japan and will arrive in U.S. theaters and on-demand on October 21. The Whole Truth is Renee Zellweger‘s first movie role in six years, even though Bridget Jones’s Baby was released first.
Reeves portrays a lawyer who is brought in to defend a teenager (Basso) who is accused of stabbing his father (Belushi) to death. Check out the trailer below.
Sadly, the trailer gives 95% of the film plot away.
Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves) takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Renée Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (Gabriel Basso) out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi) really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) tries to dig deeper – and begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover.
