DOPE Debuts a NSFW Red-Band Trailer

Open Road Films

Open Road has debuted the first red-band trailer for Rick Famuyiwa‘s Dope, reminding us high school kids have foul mouths and showing off a lot more of the story that drives the film.

This trailer focuses mostly on how ridiculous a situation Malcolm (Shameik Moore) and his friends find themselves in throughout the film, set to hit theaters on June 19.

Dope features original music by Pharrell Williams and also stars Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Kimberly Elise, Chanel Iman, Keith Stanfield, Quincy Brown, Blake Anderson, Zoë Kravitz, and rap stars A$AP Rocky and Tyga.

See Rocky yelling, “Come here lil n***a,” at Moore’s character to open up the spot.

Sadly, the red-band trailer doesn’t have much of foul language, nudity and violence. Nevermind, this actually look like it’s going to be good.

Malcolm is a high school geek with a high-top fade, carefully navigating life in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. He and his fellow outcasts share a voracious appreciation for all things ’90s hip-hop, opting to sport Cross-Colors and Z. Cavariccis at the risk of being clowned at school. He dreams of attending Harvard, but first he has to make it home every day. When a drug dealer takes a shine to Malcolm and invites him to his birthday party, Malcolm’s crew is swirled into a hilarious blender of offbeat characters and bad choices where redemption can only be found in Bitcoin.
