Following its premiere at the Cannes film festival, the first trailer for Spike Lee’s highly-anticipated BlacKkKlansman has landed online. Starring John David Washington (son of one Mr. Denzel Washington) and Adam Driver, Lee’s latest film looks like another instant classic from the prolific director behind Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X and Summer of Sam.
The original structure of Spike Lee’s 1986 She’s Gotta Have It was well-suited to a TV adaptation, but where might Netflix take it in Season 2? We’ll find out, as both Lee and star DeWanda Wise confirm Nola Darling will keep living that Brooklyn life another season.
Spike Lee really wasn’t kidding when he said he’d revisit his first official feature for a new Netflix series. Meet the new Nola Darling, as Netflix goes polyamorous for the first full She’s Gotta Have It trailer, featuring none other than a time-traveling Spike Lee.
Of all the news stories you expect to be fake, “Black Sergeant Infiltrates the Klu Klux Klan” would have to be pretty far up there. Only it really happened. For years during the ’70s and ’80s, Officer Ron Stallworth dedicated his life to infiltrating gang cultures, in particular that of the KKK. This is what led Stallworth to become (against all odds) a black card-carrying member of the Klu Klux Klan in the 1970s; unsurprisingly, this is also what makes Stallworth’s story ripe for cinematic adaptation in the year 2017.
