Spike Lee's 'BlacKkKlansman' Unveils Explosive First Trailer

Lee directs and co-wrote the story along with fellow writers Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz and Kevin Willmott, based on the novel by Ron Stallworth.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, during its world premiere at the highly esteemed film festival, the audience broke out in applause about a half-dozen times.

BLACKkKLANSMAN stars John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, Topher Grace, Corey Hawkins, Jasper Pääkkönen, Ryan Eggold, Paul Walter Hauser and Harry Belafonte.

On Monday, Focus Features released the first trailer for Spike Lee's latest joint, BlacKkKlansman.

Check out the trailer below.

Lee unloaded on Trump for, in his view, failing to adequately condemn white supremacy last summer, when neo-Nazis and white nationalists rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

U.S. diplomat involved in deadly crash leaves Pakistan
The incident also created a diplomatic row between Pakistan and U.S. as both nations placed retaliatory restrictions on diplomats. The Islamabad High Court on Friday ordered the Interior Ministry to put the diplomat's name on its Exit Control List.

"Lee will surely be a strong contender for the Cannes best-director prize and he may even bag the Palme d'Or, the festival's top honour", the publication said.

Lee also said that racism and far-right ideologies are not unique to the US, and cast it as a worldwide issue.

"That's what this film is about and I know in my heart, I don't care what the critics say or anybody else, we are on the right side of history with this film".

"And that motherf**ker did not denounce the motherf**king Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazis motherf**kers".

"We look to our leaders to give us direction, to make moral decisions", he said, continuing, "this right-wing bullshit is all over the world". The flick has the potential to be as enjoyable a movie as we've ever seen from Lee. "It's not a black, white, or brown [problem], it's everybody".

The director of "Do The Right Thing", focused in particular on the alt-right rally in Charlottesville previous year that left one woman, Heather Heyer, dead with Lee attacking the president for not condemning the neo-Nazis.
