Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall' Trailer Debuts
A crucial piece of history is coming to the big screen. With the recent SCOTUS gay marriage decision, this film couldn't have better timing.

Directed by Roland Emmerich, "Stonewall" tells the 1969 story of the Stonewall Riots, with a slightly fictionalized plot line. It focuses around the story of fictional character Danny, played by Jeremy Irvine, and the events leading up to the Stonewall Riots.



Watch the full trailer here:



While many are elated that this pivotal piece of history is being told, some critics are skeptical with the apparent lack of minorities in the film. The actual New York City Stonewall Riots brought together the entire LGBT community, including people of color, transgenders, and lesbians...while the "Stonewall" trailer seems to depict mostly white gay males.

However, we can't be too quick to judge. See for yourself when this much anticipated movie premieres at the Toronto Film Festival and opens to the public on September 25.

People stand outside the US Supreme Court June 25, 2015 in Washington, DC. The US Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a disputed portion of President Barack Obama's landmark health care reform, in a major legacy-building victory for his administration. By a margin of six to three, the judges ruled in favor of allowing the federal government to subsidize health insurance by giving tax credits to consumers nationwide. Opponents of the Affordable Care Act -- better known as 'Obamacare' -- had argued that it was unconstitutional for the federal government to subsidize insurance in this way in states that refused to set up their own insurance exchanges.
