One of the big hits at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was writer/director Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope and for those who didn’t make the trek to the festival, a teaser trailer has finally arrived online. Executive produced by Pharrell Williams (who also contributed four new songs), Dope stars Zoe Kravitz, Shameik Moore, Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Blake Anderson, A$AP Rocky, Chanel Iman, and Quincy Brown. The Sundance hit will open in theaters on June 19, 2015.
Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
