‘The Burial’ Trailer: Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones Expose Corporate Corruption and Racism

The Burial (Amazon Studios)

Oscar winners Tommy Lee Jones and Jamie Foxx team up in The Burial for a legal battle against corporate greed.

Jones plays funeral home owner Jeremiah O’Keefe, who fights to save his business after a handshake deal with the head of a large competitor goes sour.

“This fella tried to bully me out of business and I don’t think I should be expected to stand for it,” Jones says in the first trailer for the film.

He brings in charismatic, wise-cracking attorney Willie E. Gary, played by Foxx, who hasn’t lost a case in 12 years.

“Litigation is war, it’s a battle, bam! And I’m not talking about no bullshit either,” Foxx says.

Tempers flare between O’Keefe and Gary, but the unlikely pair bond while exposing corporate corruption and racial injustice in the deep South.

The cast of the upcoming Amazon Studios film also includes Jurnee Smollett, Mamoudou Athie, Pamela Reed, Bill Camp, and Alan Ruck.

Based on a real case, The Burial is adapted from a 1999 New Yorker article by the same name written by Jonathan Harr.

Maggie Betts directed the film and co-wrote the script with Doug Wright.

The movie is produced by Celine Rattray, Trudie Styler, Jamie Foxx, Datari Turner, Jenette Kahn, Adam Richman, and Bobby Shriver.

The Burial arrives in select theaters on Oct. 6 and debuts on Prime Video Oct. 13.
