This summer, it's not where you're from, it's where you're about to go! After several all-ages trailers for the critically acclaimed coming-of-age comedy Dope, we finally get the red-band trailer, which shows off the movie's wicked sense of humor and raunchy attitude. We also get the first clip, which introduces three hip-hop geeks who get in over their heads when they decide to become drug dealers.
A critical hit and audience favorite out of the Sundance Film Festival, in Dope, Malcolm (Meak Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles. To get ahead, he must juggle college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
Dope is directed by Rick Famuyiwa, produced by Forest Whitaker, Executive Produced by Pharrell Williams and Co-Executive Produced by Sean Combs. The movie features four new original songs by Pharrell Williams. And it boasts a stellar cast that includes Meak Moore, Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Blake Anderson, Zoë Kravitz, A$AP Rocky, Chanel Iman and Quincy Brown. Check out the profanity-laced trailer, and then meet Malcolm, Jib and Diggy as they set out on a quest that will forever change their lives:
