Annapurna Pictures have released the first trailer for Sorry to Bother You, a fantasy-tinged dark comedy about race in America.
The film stars Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta) as Cassius, a young black man living in a parallel version of Oakland who lands a job in a telemarketing company. Cassius soon finds success when adopting a “white voice” to talk to customers. Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok, Creed) will play the role of Cassius’ activist girlfriend, Detroit.
Sorry to Bother You also stars Terry Crews, Danny Glover, Armie Hammer, and The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun. See the trailer above. The film will premiere on July 6.
