Watch Trailer for Spike Lee's 'BlacKkKlansman'

John David Washington (son of Denzel) plays Ron Stallworth, who convinced other Klan members over the phone that he was a white man, and went undercover to infiltrate the KKK. Based on the trailer, it appears Lee has managed to make both a fun and entertaining buddy cop movie and a topical and political film that he's built his career on.

Now, five years later, he's headlining his own movie, a Spike Lee Joint called BlacKkKlansman. The first BlacKkKlansman trailer dropped and it seems like law enforcement got the drop on David Duke's Ku Klux Klan.

After screening at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, where it's a strong contender for competition of the Palme d'Or, the first trailer for writer-director Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman has now arrived for your viewing pleasure.

He quickly sets out on a risky mission to infiltrate and expose the Klan, by posing as a racist extremist. Adam Driver co-stars, and the cast includes Laura Harrier, Topher Grace, Ryan Eggold, and Robert John Burke. Adam Driver plays his colleague Flip Zimmerman. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Keep an eye out for Lee's new film arriving in USA theaters this August 10th.

In addition to writing the screenplay, Lee also serves as producer along with Jordan Peele, Jason Blum, Sean McKittrick, Raymond Mansfield, and Shaun Redick.
