The First Trailer for DEAR WHITE PEOPLE May Have You Looking at GREMLINS in a Whole New Way

I knew this trailer for DEAR WHITE PEOPLE would call out a lot of stereotypes about black culture, but never did I think it would target my precious Gremlins movies! The short teaser clip (coming in at just over a minute) from writer/director Justin Simien's Sundance Award-winning feature debut features a cast of college students (led by Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams and Teyonah Parris) taking aim at a bewildered movie theater worker for promoting films that hurt the cause like The Blind Side, Lee Daniels' The Butler, and The Help

Mixing real perspective with both humor and drama, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE doesn't seem to simply be about a group of young black people who are mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore. It actually seems to touch on real life issues that I think we could all relate to on some level. 

Watch the trailer:

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE is set for release in theaters on October 17th.
