The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for The Butler. The film is directed by Lee Daniels and features an all star cast including Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, David OyelowoJohn Cusack, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Robin Williams, Melissa LeoTerrence Howard, James Marsden, Cuba Gooding Jr., Vanessa Redgrave, Mariah Carey, and Liev Schreiber. The Butler is scheduled to hit theaters on August 16, 2013.

The Butler is inspired by Wil Haygood’s Washington Post article about an African-American man who served as a butler (Whitaker) to eight Presidents in the White House for over thirty years. From this unique vantage point, the film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’s life and family.
