Trailer: James Franco’s “In Dubious Battle”

James Franco tackles another John Steinbeck adaptation as his next directorial effort with “In Dubious Battle”. Today, only a few weeks before the film opens in limited release on February 17th, a new trailer for it has arrived.

Nat Wolff, Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston, Sam Shepard, Zach Braff, and Josh Hutcherson co-star in the adaptation of the novel considered the Pulitzer Prize-winning Steinbeck’s first major work.

The story follows California apple country migratory workers who rise up against the increasingly intolerable conditions and wages in which they are forced to toil. Founded on the tragic idealism of its doomed Jim Nolan, the group soon takes on a life of its own.
