Get a first look at Buffalo-made 'Marshall' on Kimmel

A preview of "Marshall," the locally filmed biopic about the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, will premiere on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" at 11:35 tonight on ABC.

Star Chadwick Boseman announced the sneak peek via Twitter late Tuesday night.

"Marshall" was partially made in Buffalo during the summer of 2016. It drew on the city's rich 1930s and '40s architecture with scenes shot at such historic locations as the Central Terminal, City Hall and the Statler Hotel's Rendezvous Nite Club.

The film looks at an early, career-defining case for Marshall, portrayed by Boseman, as he defended a black chauffeur against charges of attempted murder and sexual assault. Boseman also has portrayed Jackie Robinson in "42," James Brown in "Get On Up," and soon will be seen in the title role of the Marvel superhero film, "Black Panther."

Directed by Reginald Hudlin, the movie also stars Josh Gad, Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey"), Kate Hudson, James Cromwell and Sterling K. Brown. Open Road Films will release "Marshall" nationally on Oct. 13.
