Earlier this year, Rick Famuyiwa’s film Dope, about nerds in a rough L.A. neighborhood who run into trouble, made a big splash at Sundance. It’ll hit theaters across the country on June 19, and now there’s a colorful teaser trailer to drum up excitement.
Back in January, Famuyiwa spoke with EW about the film: “The main character, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a ’90s hip-hop geek. He isn’t a drug dealer or a gang banger. He’s into all types of music, and video games and computers. We’ve seen a lot of films about everything else in these neighborhoods—the crime, the athletes, the gangs—but you don’t see films about the regular kids who have to survive in these streets.”
Check out the trailer below.
