Blindspotting

It’s still hard to imagine that we live in a world where people can judge us simply by the color of our skin. Fortunately, we have films that try to bridge that gap, and hopefully, the world can accept people for who they are on the inside. Until then, the need for films like Blindspotting is necessary.

Lionsgate has dropped the first trailer for the film, which stars Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) as a parolee who is simply trying to make it through his last three days without getting into trouble. Only thing is, his best friend Miles (Rafael Casal) keeps finding ways that could put him back in jail. On top of that, Diggs’ character witnesses a police officer shooting an unarmed African American, and the tension between the community and the police is beginning to have an adverse effect on those closest to him. Check out the latest trailer below.

Carlos López Estrada‘s directorial debut will have a mix of drama, comedy, and hip-hop. All of which will be a reflection on the current state of race relations. With the Starbucks controversy being a trending blip, it does bring a lot of issues of race to the forefront.

The film actually made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was hailed as a breakout hit. Critics praised Diggs for his performance as Collin, and Estrada’s ability to balance out all the elements in the film.

Here is the official plot synopsis:

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in.

The film also stars Janina Gavankar, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ethan Embry, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Wayne Knight.

Blindspotting opens in theaters on July 20, 2018.
