The teaser trailer for Regina King’s One Night in Miami has finally been released, and it gives a huge punch.

For her feature directorial debut, King shares the story of how on February 25, 1964, after Cassius Clay (on the way to become Muhammad Ali) defeated Sonny Liston for the heavyweight title, he celebrated his victory with none other than Civil Rights activist Malcolm X, football phenom Jim Brown, and soul singer Sam Cooke.

Just as we have seen in the trailer, the four legends Clay (Eli Goree), Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Brown (Aldis Hodge), and Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) plan and spend their time together to support in their struggles as public figures. They find answers on how to uplift Black people with the platform they now have. The movie is based on a Kemp Powers play of the same name, with Powers also having written the screenplay.

Sharing more about it to EW she was attracted to the project, director Regina King said it “truly captures the conversation and the reflections of the Black man’s experience more than anything that I’ve ever seen.”

One Night in Miami comes to select theaters on Christmas Day and to Amazon Prime Video on January 15.
