New Trailer for John Boyega-Led ‘Imperial Dreams’
Netflix has revealed a brand new trailer for its John Boyega-led film Imperial Dreams that premiered three years ago at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Since then, the film has been in distribution limbo, but after being picked up by Netflix, it will be available to stream globally next Friday.
Malik Vitthal’s drama centers on a young ex-convict seeking a better life for himself and his son. Rotimi Akinosho, Glenn Plummer, Keke Palmer, De’aundre Bonds, and Justin & Ethan Coach co-star. Watch the trailer below.
Bambi (John Boyega) wants to publish his credos and chronicles and start his career the way any other normal young writer would. For Bambi, however, normal is the quandary. “Normal” means returning to Watts, Los Angeles, after a 28-month jail stint to find his young son playing next to his strung-out grandmother. It’s normal for the patriarch of his family to offer Bambi pills, guns, and a drug-running job as a way to welcome him home. A normal visit from his cousin involves Bambi and son performing minor surgery to extract a bullet from his arm. Bambi meets this surreal, ghetto normal with equanimity, but he knows life can’t be “normal” like this for long.
