Magic meets mayhem in trailer for thriller Sleight
In writer-director J.D. Dillard’s thriller Sleight, Jacob Latimore plays a street magician who is left to care for his little sister after their parents’ deaths and turns to illegal activities to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets in too deep, his sister is kidnapped and he is forced to use his magic to save her.
Sleight screened at last year’s Sundance Festival, after which WWE Studios and Blumhouse Productions picked up worldwide rights. The film costars Seychelle Gabriel, Dulé Hill, Sasheer Zamata, and Storm Reid.
Sleight will be released in cinemas on April 28. Watch the movie’s trailer above.
