From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero.

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! Basically, despite the subject matter, this movie looks pretty fun! Topher Grace ("That '70s Show") plays KKK grand wizard David Duke. Of course with Lee at the helm there's going to be meaty material within, and Adam Driver and Ballers standout John David Washington (son of Denzel Washington) look to make a terrific team. BlacKkKlansman stars John David Washington as Ron Stallworth, a cop who's new to the force in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and who infiltrates the Klu Klux Klan by pretending to be white.


"I thought about "Malcolm X", "Inside Man" [and] "25th Hour", and Spike just has an ability to do tension right, to do the moments of levity right, to deliver a social message and a punch", Peele told THR.

Produced by Jordan Peele and the team (Sean McKittrick, Raymond Mansfield, Jason Blum, and Shaun Redick) behind his Oscar-winning hit Get Out, BlacKkKlansman held its world premiere Monday evening at the Cannes Film Festival, where Lee and his cast were on hand to present the film in competition to critics and the Cate Blanchett-fronted jury. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Keep an eye out for Lee's new film arriving in US theaters this August 10th.
