After becoming a hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the film Dope is headed to theaters on June 19th.
Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, the coming of age tale tells the story of a crew of 90s hip-hop geeks as they have a eventful day in The Bottoms, a rough area of Inglewood, CA. Dope marks A$AP Rocky’s introduction to the big screen as well, who auditioned for the part after helping his then girlfriend Chanel Iman with her lines.
Forest Whitaker serves as the film’s narrator while Casey Veggies, Vince Staples and Tyga also makes appearances.
The trailer leaves much to the imagination, not truly hinting at the story line and showing brief flashes of the flick itself.
