First Trailer for Spike Lee's True Story Dark Comedy 'BlacKkKlansman'

Cannes: Spike Lee Damns President Trump for Not Denouncing the Klan

Based on the trailer, it appears Lee has managed to make both a fun and entertaining buddy cop movie and a topical and political film that he's built his career on.

"I thought about "Malcolm X", "Inside Man" [and] "25th Hour", and Spike just has an ability to do tension right, to do the moments of levity right, to deliver a social message and a punch", Peele told THR.

Pre-production on the film began as events in Charlottesville took place a year ago and Peele said the timing couldn't be any more "urgent" for this story to be told.

Spike Lee has released the new trailer for his forthcoming film BlacKkKlansman.

★★★★☆ A movie about a black cop who infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan? The film also stars Laura Harrier and is produced in part by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and Jordan Peele.

The audience broke out in applause a half-dozen times during the film's Monday night premiere, followed by four minutes of applause during the credits and a six-minute standing ovation. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a unsafe mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime.

The film is set to release on August 10, 2018 and the release will collide with one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots which saw one woman die after a vehicle drove into a crowd during a clash between white nationalists and anti-fascist protestors.
