Geeks Win the Day in Red Band Trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's 'Dope'
"I don't want to go to jail, I want to go to college!" Yes! This is great. Open Road has debuted a full red band trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Dope, another one of our Sundance 2015 favorites hitting theaters this summer. This one stars Shameik Moore as Malcom, plus his two friends Kiersey Clemons as Diggy and Tony Revolori as Jib, all of whom get caught in a totally wacky but amusing plot involving missing drugs. This trailer reveals the most from the film out of any we've seen so far, so watch out, but luckily it doesn't spoil anything too major and it's a good setup for the story you'll actually see in the film. Plus a fine look at the excellent cast featuring Zoë Kravitz, Blake Anderson, Chanel Iman and A$AP Rocky. Have fun.
Here's the new red band trailer in full for Rick Famuyiwa's Dope, originally from YouTube:
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.
