However, legendary filmmaker and punctuation iconoclast Spike Lee just rolled out the trailer for BLACKkKLANSMEN, an incendiary new film that appears to offer a bit of commentary for these uncertain times.
Set in the early 1970s, the film follows Stallworth (played by John David Washington of HBO's "Ballers") as he tries to make his mark on the force by undertaking a risky mission to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.
BlacKkKlansman is based on the real-life story of an African-American police officer (Washington) and his partner (Driver) who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the late 1970s and thwart its attempt to overrun the city. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a risky mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Following the film's successful debut at the Cannes Film Festival, the BlacKkKlansman trailer promises to be one of the controversial director's most talked about movie in years.
BLACKkKLANSMAN stars John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, Topher Grace, Corey Hawkins, Jasper Pääkkönen, Ryan Eggold, Paul Walter Hauser and Harry Belafonte. IndieWire's own Eric Kohn called the film "electric" and Lee's "most entertaining film since 'Inside Man, '" while The Guardian's film critic Peter Bradshaw compared it to a "pinball machine, pinging and flashing with N-bombs, blaxploitation tropes and unsubtle Trump premonitions".
"BlacKkKlansman" opens in theaters August 10 via Focus Features. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out, Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humor to tell this story often missing from the history books.
