First Trailer for Spike Lee's True Story Dark Comedy 'BlacKkKlansman'

BlacKkKlansman Trailer: Spike Lee's True Buddy Cop Movie

To do so, though, the rookie needs help, and he finds it in his colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), who is Jewish.

The first trailer has landed for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, a fact-based drama about an undercover cop infiltrating the Klu Klux Klan in the 1970s.

"Ron Stallworth is reading the paper, the Colorado Springs Gazette, and the Klan put an ad in the paper that they needed new members", Lee explained at a recent Tribeca film festival panel. When his presence was required, the officers sent a white officer in who doubled him and became highly regarded within the organization. "As much as BlacKkKlansman plays with the mechanics of blaxploitation fantasy, it doesn't leave one with any question about what's real". The film also stars Laura Harrier and is produced in part by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and Jordan Peele. "So, I was immediately obsessed with this story".

Vulture's Emily Yoshida said, "BlacKkKlansman is a nuanced story of race in America, but Lee doesn't take any chances with vagueness or ellipses, nor should he".

The two-minute clip was shared on Twitter on Monday as the film was screened at Cannes, where reports say it received a lengthy standing ovation. It was among the most highly anticipated titles at Cannes this year and immediate reaction was positive.

BlacKkKlansman is set for release in the U.S. on August 10.
