Spike Lee’s rolled out a new peek at his upcoming movie Chi-Raq, where women are resorted to drastic measures to bring peace to their neighborhoods.
Love lockdown is the name of the game in the new trailer for Chi-Raq, which is based on the Greek comedy Lysistrata. Spike, who partnered with Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions for this release, has updated the play by focusing it on gang violence in Chicago.
With gang violence closing its iron fist over the streets of Chicago, what’s the biggest concern in this trailer? Women withholding sex. Teyonah Parris stars as Lysistrata, who rallies her troops to use the one thing their men love more than the streets. Samuel L. Jackson has been cast as the smoothest narrator in history while Nick Cannon lives out the thug life.
TL;DR: If the men won’t stop killing each other in the streets, the ladies are going to make them feel the pain at home…and apparently at the strip club.
You can catch Chi-Raq when it debuts in limited release on December 4. It will also be available on Amazon Instant Video.
