Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson try to beat the banking system to help African Americans in the trailer for The Banker.

Here’s the synopsis of the movie according to Wikipedia: “The Banker is the true story of two African American entrepreneurs, Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who during the 1950’s tried to circumvent the racial limitations of the era and take on the establishment by recruiting a working-class white man, Matt Steiner (Hoult) and training him to pose as the head of their business empire while they posed as a janitor and a chauffeur. Nia Long plays Bernard’s wife Eunice. Garrett and Morris become two of the wealthiest and most successful real estate owners in the country with Steiner as their frontman, but their success brings about unforeseen risk of exposure that threatens everything.”
