Netflix Releases the trailer for Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods.”
Netflix has debuted the trailer for the new film Da 5 Bloods. The movie follows four veterans, Clark Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Delroy Lindo, joined by his son, Jonathan Majors. They return to Vietnam in search of the remains of their squad leader (Chadwick Boseman) and in pursuit of buried treasure.
Directed by Spike Lee, the action-packed movie trailer shows scenes of the four veterans dancing while “Apocalypse Now” plays in the background, as well as flashbacks as young soldiers in a battle scene. Vintage footage flashes between what appears to be the Vietnam War, U.S. protests, and Nixon’s resignation speech, concluding with a fist raised to the sky.
The soldiers are encouraged by Boseman’s character to bury a trunk of gold bars and return to claim the treasure later.
“We’ve been dying for this country from the very get,” says Boseman’s character. “We give this gold to our people.”
Lee produced the film with Lloyd Levin, Beatriz Levin and Jon Kilik as well as executive producers Jonathan Filley, Barry Levine and Mike Bundlie. He also co-wrote the film with Danny Bilson, Paul DeMeo and Kevin Willmott.
Da 5 Bloods cast includes Mélanie Thierry, Paul Walter Hauser, Jasper Pääkkönen, Johnny Trí Nguyễn, Van Veronica Ngo and Jean Reno and is set to premiere on Netflix June 12.
