Amazon Studios seems to be continuing the massive winning streak it’s been on lately with the likes of Manchester by the SeaThe Lost City of ZThe Big Sick, the upcoming Landline, and now the dramatic prison thriller Crown Heights, which is based on the true story of Colin Warner, a Jamaican immigrant wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to prison in 1980s Brooklyn, and his best friend, Carl King, who worked for decades to prove his innocence.

Lakeith Stanfield, whom you probably know from Atlanta and Get Out, plays Warner, while King is portrayed by newcomer Nnamdi Asomugha, who also produced the film alongside writer/director Matt Ruskin and Natalie Galazka.

Crown Heights is in limited release starting August 25. Check out the harrowing trailer below.
