Superfly Trailer

"Welcome to Atlanta - we've got everything you could ever want." Sony Pictures has debuted full-length official trailer for Superfly, following the first teaser trailer from a few months ago. This is a "remake" of the 1972 blaxploitation film Super Fly, about a cocaine dealer Priest who wants to score one more super deal and retire. This reimagining is from Director X (also known as Julien Christian Lutz), and stars Trevor Jackson (of "Grown-ish", "Burning Sands") as Youngblood Priest, this time operating in Atlanta. Superfly also stars Jason Mitchell, Michael Kenneth Williams, Lex Scott Davis, Andrea Londo, Jennifer Morrison, Rick Ross, Big Boi, and Big Bank Black. This is looking damn good, with some dope footage in the trailer. Michael Kenneth Williams looks awesome, and so does Trevor Jackson as Priest. Watch below.

Here's the full-length official trailer for Director X's Superfly, direct from Sony's YouTube:

You can still watch the teaser trailer + see the poster for Superfly here, to see a bit more footage.

Superfly – the film that helped define a genre in its characters, look, sound, and feel – is reimagined with Director X, director of legendary music videos (Drake, Rihanna), introducing it to a new generation. A remake of the 1972 blaxploitation film Super Fly - the daily routine of cocaine dealer Priest who wants to score one more super deal and retire. Superfly is directed by a Canadian filmmaker known as Director X (formerly known as Little X), a music video director who made his feature directorial debut in 2015 with the film Across the Line previously. The screenplay is written by Alex Tse. Sony Pictures will release Director X's new Superfly in theaters starting on June 15th this summer. First impression? Who's wants to see it?

Looks awful, would have been better as parody, even then, lame concept.

I loved the original and it's soundtrack, but I'm not down for this. Looks predictable and generic.

Ive seen it. There is a positive message in there and plus some pretty good hard revenge against dirty white cops, emotional moments for everyone to enjoy. Its a future forward hyper-stylized movie. And a good combo between Joel Silver (Die Hard, Lethal Weapon) and a successful 10yr+ music video director (X) It has plenty of throwback elements to the good J. Silver movies you enjoyed if you watched anything in action the 80's-90's via Blockbuster

More talking in this trailer than the entire running time of 1972 Super Fly. I think that one had a screenplay 1 1/2 pages long.
