Here at DJBobbyTrends.com, we’ve been covering and anticipating the latest Spike Lee joint Red Hook Summer. While we haven’t gotten an official trailer, besides the teaser, we now have a look at its official poster. The poster is very vibrant and reminiscent to that of Do The Right Thing. Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer will be in theaters in New York City on August 10th and expand across the country thereafter. Check out the synopsis and poster below:
The latest in Spike Lee’s Chronicles of Brooklyn anthology – which also includes “She’s Gotta Have It” (1986), “Do The Right Thing” (1989), “Crooklyn” (1994), “Clockers” (1995), and “He Got Game” (1998) – RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale (Jules Brown), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters), in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik’s summer appears to be a total disaster – until he meets Chazz Morningstar (Toni Lysaith), a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he’d ever imagined.
