We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of BlacKkKlansman (previously titled Black Klansman), the upcoming biography comedy movie directed by Spike Lee and starring John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Laura Harrier, Corey Hawkins, Robert John Burke, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Damaris Lewis, and Jasper Paakkonen:
“From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out.”
John David Washington and Adam Driver make for a damn fine team. Those KKK members better burn their ridiculous outfits!
The movie BlacKkKlansman will open in theaters on August 10, 2018.
