Spike Lee Makes Video For Prince’s Mary Don’t You Weep

Spike Lee has used footage from his current film The Black KkKlansman to created an extended trailer with Prince’s version of “Mary Don’t You Weep.” The scenes from the movie about Ron Stallworth’s infiltration into the KKK as a Black detective with Prince’s music takes a somber turn because of his 2016 passing. The comedy of the film ultimately gets buried and the mourning of his death is underscored by a photo of him and Lee together at a basketball game posted at the end of the trailer.
