He may share one of the most famous names in pop culture, but Michael B. Jordan is well on his way to making a name for himself, thanks to critically acclaimed efforts like the Sundance Film Festival favorite "Fruitvale Station."
And thanks to Yahoo! Movies, we have the first trailer for it right here.
Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at this year's Sundance Festival, "Fruitvale Station" stars Jordan in the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Oakland man who was shot to death by police in 2009, sparking outrage and a national debate over police brutality.
The film has been generating major buzz, not just on the festival circuit but also among early Oscar watchers, thanks mostly to Jordan's breakout performance. If you can call it breakout, of course, considering he's already turned in breakout performances in "Chronicle," "Red Tails" and "Friday Night Lights." He's so hot, in fact, that he recently lit off an internet firestorm when word surfaced that he may play The Human Torch in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot.
All of that is in the future, of course. For now, check out the first trailer for "Fruitvale Station." And watch a star being born right before your eyes.
