The official trailer for Matthew McConaughey‘s latest project, Free State of Jones, debuted on ESPN during the 3rd quarter of the NFL wildcard playoff game over the weekend!!

Free State of Jones is set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones.

Along with Matthew McConaughey (who in my eyes can do NO wrong!!), the movie stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and was written and directed by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit).

Free State of Jones hits theaters everywhere May 13. Check out the trailer below.
