Watch The Trailer For BlacKkKlansman Starring John David Washington…Denzel's Son

Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth mounts a risky mission to infiltrate and take down the Ku Klux Klan, enlisting the help of an experienced colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), to help him get inside the notorious hate group.

Spike Lee has taken on the challenge in his upcoming comedy "BlacKkKlansman", and based on the new trailer, it looks like he pulled it off. They say, 'We want you to come down.' Since he's an African American, he can't really show up for the interview. "As much as BlacKkKlansman plays with the mechanics of blaxploitation fantasy, it doesn't leave one with any question about what's real". It's produced by Jordan Peele, who won the Oscar for best original screenplay for his hit satirical thriller Get Out. "So, I was immediately obsessed with this story". And his latest, starring John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace, received a standing ovation at the festival.

The first trailer for the movie was also released Monday.

He passes himself off over the phone as a stereotypical white man who hates black people and is invited to join the Klan.

Lee was famously overlooked for the Palme d'Or in 1989 for Do the Right Thing, with the highest Cannes honor that year going to Steven Soderbergh's sex, lies, and videotape.

Both BlacKkKlansman and Pope Francis will be released by Focus Features, the former on August 10, coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville riots.
