After interference by Hollywood, tech companies, and the courts, the creators of a movie based on Kermit Gosnell have finally released the first trailer.
A 2014 grand jury report accused Gosnell of killing hundreds of newborns over the course of decades in Philadelphia. He was ultimately convicted of three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter.
The movie was directed by Nick Searcy (Justified, From the Earth to the Moon), produced by Phelim McAleer and Anne McElhinney, and opens Oct. 12. The filmmakers were thrown off Kickstarter and most of Hollywood closed their doors, apparently due to the anti-abortion subject matter. The film was also blocked by the judge in the Gosnell trial, but that issue has since been settled.
What do you think, Ricochetti? Will you catch it in the theaters?
