Next month Spike Lee’s film ‘Chi-Raq’ is set to hit the big screen. Yesterday he released brand new trailer on the film, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.
The clip stars with a flashing ‘This is An Emergency Sign’ followed by the numbing, yet all to well known statistic that more Americans have been killed in Chicago than have been killed in war-torn Iraq.
The movie is based on the Greek comedy ‘Lysistrata’ by Aristophanes. The star studded films is headlined by actor Teyonah Paris who plays Lysistrata. The trailer focuses around the extreme blood shed going on in the city dubbed ‘ ‘Chi-Raq’ as the women of the city try to do their best to change things.
Also appearing in the film are Nick Cannon and Angela Bassett.
The film is slated for a limited Theatrical release ( hmmm) on December 4th. Followed by a release on Amazon Instant Video, shortly thereafter.
