You've likely already been feeling the intense heat the summer is bringing already, and if you're looking for a cool place to escape in August, you might want to hit up your local arthouse where you'll still be able to feel the season's sweaty and sticky vibe, but in air conditioned comfort. Spike Lee returns with "Red Hook Summer," his first non-doc feature since 2008's "Miracle At St. Anna's," and a handful of new images are here to give you a further look at what he'll be bringing.

On a weekend where record temperatures were being recorded in New York City, and elsewhere in the U.S., it's appropriate that two of the best films in theaters, "Magic Mike" and "Take This Waltz," both revolve around long, hot summers. And it's doubly appropriate that Saturday also marked the anniversary of perhaps the definitive heatwave movie: Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing." Of course, Lee's masterpiece isn't just a look at Brooklyn over a boiling hot summer day, it's also one of the greatest American films in the history of the medium, one whose critical reputation has only grown since Kim Basinger's protestation on stage at the Oscars the following year that it was the best film of 1989, and yet hadn't been nominated (although Danny Aiello got a nod, as did Lee's screenplay).

Rafe Spall To Star In 'Son Of The South' Produced By Spike Lee

It’s probably fair to say by now that Rafe Spall is a bit of a rising star. The son of Timothy Spall excelled in early roles in Edgar Wright’s “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz,” while in the last twelve months he’s done his very best to steal the show through lightly comic roles in “One Day,” “Anonymous” and “Prometheus.” After being cast as a romantic lead in Dan Mazer’s newlywed comedy "I Give It A Year" opposite Rose Byrne and Anna Faris earlier this year, it appeared that the range of roles Spall was attracting was beginning to significantly broaden. That trend seems to be continuing with Spall set to lead the Spike Lee produced indie drama “Son Of The South.”

While the buzz around Spike Lee's "Red Hook Summer" is that it's another chapter in his ongoing Chronicles Of Brooklyn, judging by this first trailer, it's his most hazy, lazy days-of-summer flick since his breakout "Do The Right Thing." Shot digitally and on a low budget, that hasn't prevented the film from popping with color (those reds!) and capturing Brooklyn in all of its summer sun-soaked glory. As for the film, it promises to be another charged outing from Lee.

It's red and it pops with color. It's the new poster for Spike Lee's upcoming drama, the 6th or 7th (depending on who's counting) installment of his chronicles of Brooklyn series, "Red Hook Summer."

Spike Lee Talks About Making Documentary On Michael Jackson's 'Bad', 'Go Brazil Go'; 'Oldboy' Is Still Waiting For A Green Light

For every "Girl 6," "She Hate Me" or "Miracle at St. Anna" in filmmaker Spike Lee's oeuvre there's not only a great feature to offset it ("25th Hour," "He Got Game," "Inside Man"), but several, fantastic documentaries ("4 Little Girls," "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts" "If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise") as well. One could even argue if Lee's feature career got a little uneven later in the game (which is still very debatable), his documentaries -- some of them his best work, period -- never faltered.

So many actors and actresses have been linked with Spike Lee's "Oldboy" remake that we have trouble recalling which ones actually scored the roles but things look to be settling down with "District 9" star Sharlto Copley joining Josh Brolin, taking the villain role last week, while Elizabeth Olsen is eyeing the female lead. From early in its conception, the project has been noted as drawing more from the graphic novel source rather than being a direct remake of Park Chan-wook's film but the biggest question has always been where and how Mark Protosevich's script differs.

While Spike Lee has conquered both the big and small screen with feature films and documentaries, when it comes to television series', he's had far less luck. In 2004 he tried to get "Sucker Free City" up over at Showtime, a series that would've chronicled the disparate groups at play in the gentrification of San Francisco. After a two hour pilot (which wound up being screened at TIFF) it didn't go much further. And it seems another small screen effort has been put on hold before it ever really got started.
