If you enjoy films that absolutely scramble the hell out of your brain, then you’re going to enjoy the upcoming sci-fi/fantasy satire, Sorry to Bother You.
The movie, directed and written by Boots Riley, stars Lakeith Stanfield as a young man who lives in an alternate version of present-day Oakland. He gets a job as a telemarketer and discovers the key to success in the professional world is using his “white voice” while talking to people.
“His impression of a chipper suburbanite sends him shooting up the corporate ladder, where he’s met by Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), a coke-snorting CEO who appends his multimillion-dollar offers with smiley faces. As Cassius turns up with all sorts of buttoned-up types, his on-again, off-again girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson) remains unimpressed by his cashing in on code-switching.”
In addition to Stanfield, Hammer and Thompson, you’ll find Terry Crews, Steven Yeun and Danny Glover. You need to watch the trailer below to see how truly crazy/unique this film is.
It’s expected to hit theaters July 6, 2018, and it’s safe to say people are going to be a little confused…
