It’s been four years since director Gary Ross helped launch The Hunger Games franchise. Ross, who was concerned he wouldn’t have enough time to make the sequels, stepped away from the series, leaving the other installments in the hands of director Francis Lawrence. Perhaps using his clout from the success of the first film, the Seabiscuit and Pleasantville director’s follow-up to The Hunger Games is a fairly large-scale period drama set during the Civil War.
Free State of Jones stars Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), Keri Russell (The Americans), and Mahershala Ali (The Hunger Games franchise). Below, watch the new Free State of Jones trailer.

It’s not that Lupita Nyong’o hasn’t kept herself busy since her Oscar win for 12 Years a Slave. But we’ve barely seen her, because her two biggest recent roles, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book, have kept her wonderfully expressive face offscreen. Fortunately, that changes this fall with Queen of Katwe.
Directed by Mira Nair, the based-on-a-true-story drama stars Nyong’o as a poor single mother raising a 10-year-old daughter, Phiona (played by newcomer Madina Nalwanga) in rural Uganda. Phiona’s life takes an unexpected turn when she meets a missionary (David Oyelowo) teaching local children how to play chess, and discovers she has a natural talent for the game.
