Kicked out of his own home, young Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) flees to NY, leaving behind his beloved sister (Joey King). Homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of the local drag queens, gays, lesbians, and everything in between: The Stonewall Inn. However, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven. At the bar, Danny meets the suave Trevor (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) before catching the eye of Ed Murphy (Ron Perlman), Stonewall's repulsive manager who colludes with corrupt police, exploits homeless youth for financial gain, and is even suspected to have had a hand in some of their "disappearances." It spirals out of control when the police unexpectedly raid Stonewall. In a storm of anger and with the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born. Check out the trailer for Roland Emmerich's latest below!

Roland Emmerich is undoubtedly known for his films featuring mass destruction (INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGANCE, 2012), but STONEWALL may prove to be his most emotional journey yet. The man seems to have a pretty keen visual eye, with or without buildings exploding, and it looks to really service the story here. The cast looks pretty on-point (Ron Perlman!) so we may have a sleeper drama on our hands come next month.

STONEWALL will be released in theaters on September 25, 2015.

Consider me cautiously optimistic

I didn't even know this was being made. By Roland Emmerich of all people. Hey, the trailer looks good. Has a retro vibe that made me think of West Side Story, with some Do the Right Thing mixed in. Hopefully that wasn't just the marketing, and Emmerich uses the true events setting to not preach at the audience, as has been his tendency with some of his other, more disaster-oriented outings.
