Denzel Washington's Heart-stopping 'Fences' Trailer Reveals A True Oscar Contender

Paramount Pictures has just revealed one of the best teaser trailers of the year for what could very well be one of the best films of the year. Denzel Washington's latest directorial effort Fences, is adapted from the Tony Award winning stage play of the same name and takes place in the 1950s and revolves around an African-American former baseball star who now works as a trash collector, crossing the race barrier to serve as a driver, not just a barrel lifter.

Both Washington and Viola Davis reprise their incredible roles which they won awards for back in 2010 and the results look to be absolutely incredible! I'm calling it right now folks, this is our first true Oscar contender!
