BlacKkKlansman is based on the very real story of Colorado Springs first black detective Sgt. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) and his incredibly brave operation to go undercover and expose one of America's most violent racist hate groups: the Ku Klux Klan. He enlists the help of a more seasoned partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) and the two undertake their audacious plan, right as the Klan is in the midst of "sanitizing" its image.

Laura Harrier and Topher Grace round out the supporting cast. BlacKkKlansmanis produced by many of the people who brought us Get Out, including Jordan Peele (for Monkeypaw), Jason Blum (for Blumhouse), Sean McKittrick and Raymond Mansfield (for QC Entertainment). A few of the first stills released around the film are below.

BlacKkKlansman hits theaters August 10. Enjoy the official poster and the first trailer below, and stay tuned for my interview with Craig muMs Grant from the film and the sci-fi picture Hover.
