Share

After screening at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, where it's a strong contender for competition of the Palme d'Or, the first trailer for writer-director Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman has now arrived for your viewing pleasure.

Directed by Lee, the film is based on the true story of the real Ron Stallworth who went undercover with the Colorado Springs police department and gained access to the local KKK chapter.

Set in the early 1970s, the film follows Stallworth (played by John David Washington of HBO's "Ballers") as he tries to make his mark on the force by undertaking a unsafe mission to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.

Stallworth's work, which he chronicled in the 2014 book Black Klansman, led him to the very top of the organization, even bringing him into contact with the Ku Klux Klan's leader, David Duke.

BLACKkKLANSMAN stars John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, Topher Grace, Corey Hawkins, Jasper Pääkkönen, Ryan Eggold, Paul Walter Hauser and Harry Belafonte. Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) penetrate the KKK at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city.
