Director Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot aims to bring the infamous true story of the West Memphis Three to the big screen. Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon lead a star-studded cast in the upcoming crime drama based on the brutal murders of three young boys in Arkansas in 1993, and the trial of three teenagers accused of killing the children as part of a satanic ritual.

The new trailer for the upcoming crime drama heavily features Firth as private investigator Ron Lax, who’s not entirely convinced the three teenagers convicted of murder are guilty, and Witherspoon as Pam Hobbs, the grieving mother of one of the victims.

Watch the trailer for Devil’s Knot below:

Devil’s Knot hits theaters May 9 and also stars Dane DeHaan (Kill Your Darlings), Stephen Moyer (True Blood), and Mireille Enos (World War Z).
