Red Band Trailer for DOPE “Finds the White People”

Posted on June 12, 2015 at 1:54 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Admittedly, writer-director Rick Famuyiwa’s upcoming comedy feature Dope wasn’t on my radar until today. I’m glad I’ve remedied that because it looks damn funny if this new NSFW trailer is any indication. I hope it gets a big promotional push before its June 19th release date. The contemporary movie follows a nostalgic, 90s-obsessed nerd named Malcolm (Shameik Moore) and his friends Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) and Jib (Tony Revolori) who get caught up in a drug deal and must deal with the consequences. It’s a fresh take on the “good kid in a bad neighborhood” story and certainly looks at drug dealing from a new perspective. And the biggest surprises of all are some of the laugh-out-loud lines of dialogue and jump cuts. Keep your eye on this one.

Check out the new NSFW trailer for Dope below, with an introduction by Workaholics’ Blake Anderson:

Here’s the official synopsis for Dope:

A critical hit and audience favorite out of the Sundance Film Festival, in DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
