So, About the Trailer for Spike Lee's CHI-RAQ...

Yeah, so...I don't know what to even say about the trailer for Spike Lee's latest joint, CHI-RAQ, It just looks like he's trying to say a whole lot here, and not really managing to say anything much at all--which is the very opposite of any great Spike Lee film.

But maybe this is just a really bad trailer for a great film, featuring a lot of random stars including John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Angela Bassett, Teyonah Parris, Dave Chappelle, Nick Cannon and many more. I don't know, I want to have high hopes for it. But I remember Red Hook Summer, so I won't be allowed to be tricked again.


Chi-Raq is a modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play “Lysistrata” by Aristophanes. After the murder of a child by a stray bullet, a group of women led by Lysistrata organize against the on-going violence in Chicago’s Southside creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.

Thoughts? Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions will release CHI-RAQ in theaters December 4.
