Watch: Spike Lee’s The BlacKkKlansman Official Trailer


[youtube id=”KvQrwzoK3hE”]The trailer for Spike Lee’s The Black KkKlansman features John David Washington in his role as detective Ron Stallworth who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan as a Black man. The movie is based on the book Black Klansman Stallworth wrote detailing his experiences as the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department. It is a comedy-drama and the trailer’s funniest scene is when Washington reenacts Stallworth’s initial phone call to KKK Grand Wizard David Duke. The movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival Monday night and received a six-minute standing ovation. Critics are calling Lee’s new film his best in a long time. The Black KkKlansman opens in theaters August 10th.
