Free State Of Jones Starring Matthew McConaughey Coming This Summer

Oscar winning actor Matthew McConaughey is back in theaters this Summer with STX Entertainment’s action-drama, Free State of Jones. The official trailer released this week and you don’t want to miss it!


Written and directed by four-time Oscar® nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), and starring Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey, Free State of Jones is an epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy.

Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones.

Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War. ©STX Entertainment
