BlacKkKlansman, Cannes Film Festival

BLACKkKLANSMAN

Focus Features has released the trailer for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, which tells the true story of a black Colorado police officer who managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan, becoming the leader of a local chapter. Stallworth detailed his experience in his 2014 novel "Black Klansman". Basically, despite the subject matter, this movie looks pretty fun!

Somehow, I missed the memo that John David Washington had made the transition from football to acting.

Stallworth finds himself so accepted that he ends up having phone conversations with Grand Wizard David Duke, played by Topher Grace, who doesn't suspect at all that he is actually conversing with an African-American. Give me this movie right now.

BlacKkKlansman had its world premiere on Monday at the Cannes Film Festival, where it will compete for the Palm d'Or.

BlacKkKlansman hits theaters August 10, via Focus Features. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department's rank and file.

He enlists the help of white colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) who poses as Ron in any face-to-face meetings with members of the group.

In addition to writing the screenplay, Lee also serves as producer along with Jordan Peele, Jason Blum, Sean McKittrick, Raymond Mansfield, and Shaun Redick.
