Here’s the official trailer of CHi-Raq (yep, the film’s title is a portmanteau of “Chicago” and “Iraq), the upcoming drama movie directed by Spike Lee and starring Nick Cannon, Teyonah Parris, Anya Engel-Adams, Samuel L. Jackson, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, and Dave Chappelle:
“A modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata by Aristophanes, set against the backdrop of gang violence in Chicago. After the murder of a child by a stray bullet, a group of women led by Lysistrata organize against the on-going violence in Chicago’s Southside creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.”
Lysistrata is definitely a woman of like no other!
Anyway, here’s the film poster:
The release date of CHi-Raq is set to December 4, 2015.
