Judas and The Black Messiah – New Trailer Released

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the brand new trailer for Shaka King‘s powerful new biographical drama, JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH, coming soon to UK cinemas.

The film stars Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield, Jesse Plemons, Dominique Fishback, Ashton Sanders and Martin Sheen, alongside Algee Smith, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Dominique Thorne, Amari Cheatom, Caleb Eberhardt and Lil Rel Howery.

Inspired by true events, JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH marks Shaka King‘s studio feature film directorial debut and is co-written by King and Will Berson, based on a story by King, Berson, Kenny Lucas and Keith Lucas.

FBI informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party and is tasked with keeping tabs on their charismatic leader, Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). A career thief, O’Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell (Jesse Plemons). Hampton’s political prowess grows just as he’s falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson (Dominique Fishback). Meanwhile, a battle wages for O’Neal’s soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (Martin Sheen) commands?

JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH is produced by Ryan Coogler (“Black Panther,” “Creed,” “Fruitvale Station”) and Charles D. King (“Just Mercy,” “Fences”), along with Shaka King, and executive produced by Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks, Ravi Mehta, Jeff Skoll, Anikah McLaren, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Ted Gidlow, and Niija Kuykendall.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Sean Bobbitt (“12 Years a Slave,” “Widows”), production designer Sam Lisenco (“Shades of Blue”), editor Kristan Sprague (“Random Acts of Flyness”) and costume designer Charlese Antoinette Jones (“Raising Dion”). The music is by Craig Harris and Mark Isham.
