The trailer for RBG, the documentary on Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has dropped and — whoa! — does this movie look good. The first few seconds of the trailer are immensely satisfying. It opens with the iconic jurist sternly telling the camera, “I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.” That powerhouse open then segues into footage of the 84-year-old, who’s known for her vigorous workout routine, pumping dumbbells over her head.

The film traces Ginsburg’s entire life all the way from childhood and covers her setting out on a legal career that has seen her reach the highest court in all the land. At one point, over archival footage of Ginsburg in a cap and gown on graduation day, we hear her voice telling us about the mountain she climbed all those years ago. “I became a lawyer when women were not wanted by the legal profession.”
The film, produced by Magnolia Pictures, hits theaters on May 4. Below, check out the trailer, which is two-and-a-half minutes of bliss. By the end, we get another peek at her workout regimen see her doing planks!
