Official West of Memphis Trailer Debuts

6 years ago by Reg Seeton

The first trailer for the Peter Jackson produced West of Memphis was released online ahead of the world premiere at Sundance on January 20.

The new trailer for West of Memphis, an investigative documentary by Amy Berg, gives moviegoers a preview of the new real life drama that chronicles the West Memphis Three, a trio of young boys who were convicted of murder in 1993 despite a lack of solid evidence.

Produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, West of Memphis chronicles the story of Jason Baldwin, Jesse Misskelley Jr., and Damien Echols who were convicted of murder. Each was arrested and charged with three counts of capital murder, with one sentenced to death. After more investigation, however, other suspects began to surfaced that indicated the law may have made a mistake.

Check out the first trailer for West of Memphis below:
