Surprised nobody posted about this yet. People were raving about it at SXSW and the trailer looks nuts, in a good way!

Lakeith Stanfield is going to have a breakthrough role here, and Tessa Thompson continues to crush it.

Ah! I meant to post this last week but forgot to. Thanks for starting the thread. This is far and away my most anticipated movie right now. Boots fucking Riley making what looks like the Putney Swope version of a Kafka story. And my unreserved love for Lakeith Stanfield is well-documented.

This looks amazing!

I worked on this film and have known Boots for a long time. He originally wrote the script as a joke because he was exhausted by the grind of making albums so he taught himself screenwriting in order to write some music as the soundtrack to the movie that he may or may not get to make one day. pretty crazy to see it all come together step by step.

i'm happy that we have that Messages of the Week-thing here, because I might not have opened this thread otherwise.

this looks amazing. I haven't been this exited for a comedy in a while.

^ seconded. and wow. had to watch the trailer twice back-to-back. looking forward to this one
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

ps - two years before production Boots's script was released by McSweeney's - so you can read them now.

We play this trailer where I work and every time I catch it I get a lil more excited. Kanye's tweetz have me thinkin' on its premise a bunch, too. So much power in a voice. Can't wait to watch it play out.
