Watch The Trailer For Spike Lee's 'BLACKkKLANSMAN'

Watch The Trailer For Spike Lee's 'BLACKkKLANSMAN'

From visionary director Spike Lee comes the provocative story based on Ron Stallworth's real life as Colorado Springs's first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. They say, 'We want you to come down.' Since he's an African American, he can't really show up for the interview. "I couldn't believe I had never heard about it".

While Peele initially considered directing the film himself, he eventually came to realize that Lee should be the director. It's one of these pieces of reality that nearly plays like social satire.

"With the right white man, we can do anything?".

It's Lee's first traditional feature film since 2015's Chi-Raq, having directed theater/cinema hybrids Rodney King and Pass Over since.


Vulture's Emily Yoshida said, "BlacKkKlansman is a nuanced story of race in America, but Lee doesn't take any chances with vagueness or ellipses, nor should he". He also screened She's Gotta Have It and Jungle Fever in competition, while Girl 6 was at the festival in an out-of-competition spot and Summer of Sam played in the Directors' Fortnight.

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. It was among the most highly anticipated titles at Cannes this year and immediate reaction was positive.

BlacKkKlansman opens in theatres on August 10.
