It’s Trailer-palooza today on Geek Legacy. Today we’ve already had the final trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Robert Downey Jr.’s The Judge, The Kevin Hart comedy Wedding Ringer, and a red band trailer for Sex Tape. Now we have the trailer for Writer-director Justin Simien’s Sundance darling Dear White People. The film has been cleaning up on the film festival circuit, including Sundance’s Special Jury Prize for Breakthrough Talent.  Now that the film’s trailer is online, you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about.  The provocative and satirical take on modern-day race relations follows a group of African-American students attending a predominantly white Ivy League school.

Starring Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P. Bell, Kyle Gallner, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Marque Richardson, and Dennis Haysbert, Dear White People opens October 17th in limited release.

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

Bell (“Hollywood Heights”), Kyle Gallner (A Nightmare on Elm Street, CBGB), Malcolm Barrett (The Hurt Locker), Brittany Curran (“Chicago Fire”), Marque Richardson (“The Newsroom”) and Dennis Haysbert (“24,” Far From Heaven).
