  • BlacKkKlansman Trailer for Spike Lee's True Buddy Cop Movie

Based on the trailer, it appears Lee has managed to make both a fun and entertaining buddy cop movie and a topical and political film that he's built his career on.

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. Watch the film's first trailer above.

"With the right white man, we can do anything?".

Spike Lee's Ku Klux Klan crime drama "BlacKkKlansman" received a rousing, lengthy standing ovation at the 71st Cannes Film Festival.

Lynchburg area at risk of severe storms; derecho a possibility
That's particularly for areas to the north and west of Long Island, said Carlie Buccola, weather service meteorologist in Upton. Today's forecast calls for cloudy skies with a high of 63 and rain, with a chance of thunderstorms and hail after 10 a.m.


Stallworth's work, which he chronicled in the 2014 book Black Klansman, led him to the very top of the organization, even bringing him into contact with the Ku Klux Klan's leader, David Duke. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film's rapturous response lasted for ten minutes as soon as the credits began to roll with many taking to their feet in celebration of the director. 'BLACKkKLANSMAN', which pairs Lee with Jordan Peele, has been gaining attention for its interesting story plot.

BlacKkKlansman, which focuses on a black police officer (Washington) who infiltrated the KKK in the 1970s, marks Lee's sixth time in Cannes' official lineup. The film also stars Laura Harrier and Topher Grace.

Early reactions from Cannes have been mostly positive.

BlacKkKlansman is set for release in the USA on August 10. He arrived at the Monday night premiere wearing two knuckle rings, one of which read "love" and the other "hate", along with a pair of Nike shoes - one white, one back - that featured the name of the film on the side of each.
