DON’T SLEEP: “Dear White People” (written & dir. by Justin Simien) [FILM TRAILER]
The controversial film by auteur Justin Simien that spread like wildfire via word of mouth during the Sundance Film Festival “Dear White People” doesn’t get released until October but it’s already highly anticipated by both film fans and it’s detractors. The longform trailer just hit YouTube (do me a favor and avoid the comments section entirely) recently and it’s only thing that makes me want the Fall to hurry up and get here. Because Summer. Check out the long form trailer for Justin Simien’s “Dear White People” starring Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams, Lionel Higgins, Teyonah Pariss & Dennis Haysbert premieres on October 17th. Hopefully, this means we’re finally exiting the Tyler Perry Era of Black Hollywood films. About damb time!
