DOPE celebrated its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January and the official trailer for the movie has come out this past week.
The movie trailer, which celebrates A$AP Rocky’s feature film debut, looks rather promising.
In DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT.
A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
Rick Famuyiwa wrote and directed the film, and was lucky enough to get the support of some film and music heavy weights.
Among the long list of supporters of DOPE you find Forest Whitaker (Producer), Pharrell Williams (Executive Producer), and Diddy (Co-Executive Producer).
Furthermore Pharrell Williams contributed four new songs to the movie.
DOPE is out in theatres on June 19. Watch the trailer for DOPE!
