Spike Lee's 'BlacKkKlansman' Unveils Explosive First Trailer

The movie, starring Denzel Washington's son John David Washington as the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, centres around the cop's efforts to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan in his first assignment.

"It was a defining moment and he could have said to the United States and the world that we're better than that", said Lee.

"I was not going to put that murder scene in the film without her blessing", said Lee.

Ahead of its release in August, The Fan Carpet are pleased to present the Trailer and First Look Photo set for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, based on the Novel by Ron Stallworth, courtesy of Universal Pictures!

New Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster unveiled
The open-air sports vehicle gets its power from the AMG 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine and will come in three different versions. This means sports seats wrapped in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre with the optional extra being nappa leather.

While Peele initially considered directing the film himself, he eventually came to realize that Lee should be the director.

BlacKkKlansman is set for release on August 10th in the USA and on August 24th in the UK.

The true story first captured the intention of "Get Out" director Peele, who told The Hollywood Reporter that when he learned about Stallworth's Klan-busting operation, "I was just blown away".

Screen Daily's Tim Grierson said: "It's no surprise that director Spike Lee prefers a hammer to a scalpel for this real-life drama, but his righteous fury is supplemented with a mature thoughtfulness that gives the proceedings the grim weight of history".

Laurie said in Psalms 122:6 Christians are commanded to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem" - "May those who love you be secure". Pastor Jeffress is a strong supporter of both President Trump and the current Israeli government.

"BlacKkKlansman is a nuanced story of race in America, but Lee doesn't take any chances with vagueness or ellipses, nor should he". He bounced into the premiere announcing: "Brooklyn's in the house!"

Spike premiered five of his previous films at Cannes, famously lost out on winning the coveted Palme d'Or in 1989 for Do the Right Thing.

He hopes BlacKkKlansman "shakes people from their slumber".

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