Dope

Most of the films we named as our 10 Most Anticipated Films of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival have only revealed a couple first look photos and a vague synopsis. However, one of the picks on Alex Billington's list gets teased a bit more in a short tease for Dope.  The film follows a group of high schoolers living in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. Shameik Moore leads the film with The Grand Budapest Hotel's lobby boy Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Zoë Kravitz, rapper A$AP Rocky and "Workaholics" star Blake Anderson. We'll definitely be checking this one out. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Dope from InstatygaTube (via The Film Stage):

Dope

Dope is directed by Rick Famuyiwa. Malcolm 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 share a voracious appreciation for all things '90s hip-hop, opting to sport Cross-Colours and Z. Cavariccis at the risk of being clowned at school. 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 debuts at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival this month.
