Dope has been garnering lots of attention and accolades since it hit Sundance this year, and now the film’s first official trailer sets out to show the world what all the hype is about.
The film follows Malcolm (Shameik Moore), a self proclaimed geek who 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.
You can watch the full trailer below:
Anyone else getting a nerdy Boyz in the Hood meets The Hangover vibe from this? Either way, I can’t wait to check this film out when it hits theaters.
Dope stars Shameik Moore, Zoe Kravitz, Kiersy Clemons, Forest Whitaker, Keith Stanfield, Tony Revolori, Blake Anderson, A$AP Rocky and Chanel Iman.
You can catch the buzz-worthy coming of age film when it hits theaters June 19th.
