'Fences' Trailer: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis Take a Hard Look at Life

"It's not easy for me to admit that I've been standing in the same place for 18 years."

Paramount has released a teaser trailer for Fences, which shares an intense preview of Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in the film adaptation of the late August Wilson's 1983 Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play.

Washington directs the drama, in which he stars as a promising baseball player turned garbage collector. Washington and Davis also starred in the 2010 Broadway revival of the drama, roles that earned both actors Tony Awards.

Fences hits theaters Dec. 25.
