"Nobody's gonna suspect a thing. We're just geeks, doing what geeks do." After a unique and stylish teaser trailer for the indie sensation Dope surfaced earlier this year, the full trailer finally lays out the story for those unsure what kind of movie to expect. What's cool, is that while the trailer definitely shows us what the movie is about, it also adds some of that style we saw in the first trailer with some cool graphics overlaying footage from the movie. This is truly a gem from Sundance this year, and it's undoubtedly a breakthrough performance for Shameik Moore in the lead and the start of a bright future for diector Rick Famuyiwa.
Here's the full trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Dope from Open Road Films:
You can still watch the cool teaser trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Dope right here.
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.

Hey Ethan... Though I'm sure Rick would appreciate the sentiment about his bright future...fans of his films ...( 'The Wood', 'Brown Sugar' and 'Talk to Me' ) already know how talented this brotha is. I'm sure this movie is going to be ... Ahem... 'Dope'.
