Another Trailer For Rick Famuyiwa's 'Dope' Starring Shameik Moore
"If Neil deGrasse Tyson was writing about Ice Cube – this is what it would look like." Open Road Films has debuted another new trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Dope via BET this time, to follow up the other two trailers we've seen for this Sundance sensation. But it's so good! And I'm down with them doing whatever it takes to find an audience for this gem. Up-and-comer Shameik Moore stars as Malcom, a geeky high school kid growing up in Inglewood, joined by Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Zoë Kravitz, Keith Stanfield and Blake Anderson. Hopefully you're already planning on seeing this, but if not, or if you need any more convincing, take a look. I guarantee you this is worth your time, one of the best indie breakouts this year.
Here's the second full trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Sundance breakout Dope, this time from BET.com:
Dope is written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa. Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a high school geek with a high-top fade, carefully navigating life in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. He and his fellow outcasts (Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons) share a voracious appreciation for all things '90s hip-hop. He dreams of attending Harvard, but first he has to make it home every day. When a drug dealer takes a shine to Malcolm and invites him to his birthday party, Malcolm’s crew is swirled into a hilarious blender of offbeat characters and bad choices where redemption can only be found in Bitcoin. The film first premiered at Sundance earlier this year and it will hit limited theaters on June 19th this summer.
