‘The Burial’ Trailer: Jamie Foxx & Tommy Lee Jones

“This fella tried to bully me out of business,” Jeremiah O’Keefe says. “I don’t think I should be expected to stand for it.” His wife reminds him, “You’ve never sued anybody before in your whole life.”

That’s about to change. Enter Willie E. Gary, a lawyer who “hasn’t lost a case in over 12 years.”

Here is the first trailer for Amazon Studios’ The Burial, in which Jones stars alongside fellow Oscar winner Jamie Foxx. Have a look above.

When a handshake deal goes sour, funeral homeowner O’Keefe (Jones) enlists charismatic, smooth-talking attorney Gary (Foxx) to save his family business from a half-billion-dollar corporation whose brass are none too worried. “Who is this clown he’s hired as a lawyer?” one asks. The businessmen counter with a hotshot attorney of their own — one Mame Downes (Jurnee Smollett), who graduated at the top of her Harvard Law School class and earned has a nickname: The Python.

“I wouldn’t get too used to me being kind to you, Mr. Gary,” she says during the attorneys’ first meeting. “Once we begin that trial, I’m gonna destroy you.”

Tempers flare between O’Keefe and Gary and doubts arise, but bonding ensues as the unlikely pair expose corporate corruption and racial injustice — while seeking a cool $100 million.

Mamoudou Athie, Pamela Reed with Bill Camp and Alan Ruck also star in the R-rated film from director Maggie Betts, who also co-wrote it with Doug Wright based on the latter’s story and The New Yorker article by Jonathan Harr. The producers are Foxx, Celine Rattray, Trudie Styler, Datari Turner, Jenette Kahn, Adam Richman and Bobby Shriver.

The Burial hits theaters for a one-week run starting October 6 and begins streaming October 13 on Prime Video.
