DOPE.

After being a hit at the Sundance Film Festival, the trailer for the highly anticipated movie, DOPE, is here! The film stars Shameik Moore as Malcolm, a modern day geek who's trying find his way and himself while in high school. Another notable appearances in the movie are A$AP Rocky, Chanel Iman, Zoe Kravitz, Blake Anderson, amongst others. DOPE is executive produced by music heavyweights Pharrell and Sean "Diddy" Combs and also features brand new music from Pharrell.

Here's the synopsis of DOPE:
 The hit movie out of the Sundance Film Festival, DOPE tells the story of Malcolm (Shameik Moore) who is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself. Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, Produced by Forest Whitaker, Executive Produced by Pharrell Williams and Co-Executive Produced by Sean Combs.

This movie seems... cool. I like the look and feel of it from the movie and it doesn't feel like they are trying too hard to make this movie relatable and "trendy". I'm not overly excited about this but I am pretty intrigued. And I'm interested in how the story in the film will play out.

Check out the trailer, check out YouAreDope.com (the movie's Tumblr), and be sure to check it out in theaters on 6.19.15!
