John David Washington infiltrates the KKK in Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman trailer

The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw was less receptive to the film, saying: "It's an entertaining spectacle but the brilliant tonal balance in something like Jordan Peele's satire Get Out leaves this looking a little exposed".

The trailer for Spike Lee's upcoming film BlacKkKlansman was released on Monday following its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Despite the subject matter, though, BlacKkKlansman looks super fun (check out Kylo Ren as a white nationalist and the way Denzel's son, John David Washington, says "white") and Lee's most commercial movie in years.

"BlacKkKlansman" opens is making its debut at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and will hit theaters August 10.

The film will be based on Stallworth's own 2014 memoir "Black Klansman", with the screenplay adapted by Charlie Wachtel and David Rabinowitz as well as by Spike Lee and Kevin Willmont. The film is based on a true story of a black police officer in Colorado who infiltrated the Klu Klux Klan. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out, Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humor to tell this story often missing from the history books.
