20th Century Fox has released the first official trailer for The Hate U Give.
Directed by George Tillman, Jr., the movie is based on the book by Angie Thomas. The film stars Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, KJ Apa and Anthony Mackie and arrives in cinemas in October.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.”
