Spike Lee's BlackKklansman Could Be One of His Best Movies in Years

The film, produced by Oscar victor Jordan Peele, stars John David Washington (son of Denzel) as Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department in the early 1970s. Adam Driver co-stars, and the cast includes Laura Harrier, Topher Grace, Ryan Eggold, and Robert John Burke.

Check out the trailer below and stay tuned to Collider for our review of BlacKkKlansman from its Cannes Film Festival premiere shortly. The first BlacKkKlansman trailer dropped and it seems like law enforcement got the drop on David Duke's Ku Klux Klan.

The preview opens with Stallworth becoming the first black cop in Colorado Springs, and he quickly decides he wants to make a big difference.

One day he sees an ad in the local newspaper about how people can find out more information about the Klu Klux Klan and he calls the number.

"With the right white man, we can do anything?".

He then sends his colleague Flip to meet with the Klansmen and infiltrate the organization.

The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw was less receptive to the film, saying: "It's an entertaining spectacle but the brilliant tonal balance in something like Jordan Peele's satire Get Out leaves this looking a little exposed". He arrived at the Monday night premiere wearing two knuckle rings, one of which read "love" and the other "hate", along with a pair of Nike shoes - one white, one back - that featured the name of the film on the side of each.

BlacKkKlansman is due to be released in United Kingdom cinemas on August 24.
