Red Hook Summer

Wel, here it is folks! The wait is over! The first official trailer for Spike Lee's much-talked about upcoming next joint, titled, Red Hook Summer.

Synopsis reads:

RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale (Jules Brown), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters), in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster--until he meets Chazz Morningstar (Toni Lysaith), a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he'd ever imagined.

I saw the film at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, as most of you know, where it stimulated lots of discussion/debate, after its premiere there. I reviewed the film as well.

But given that it's been *recut* (14 minutes or so shaved off), I'll wait to see what the new version looks, sounds and feels like, before making any further commentary on the film. So, you can toss out my old review (for now anyway), and after I see the latest cut, I'll certainly write up a new one (although you can expect that there'll probably be some comparisons made between both versions).

But I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the new Red Hook Summer.

The 121-minute film will be released in theaters (via Variance Films) beginning on August 10, here in the USA.
