Prime Video has released an official trailer for Red, White and Blue. The film is the latest addition to director Steve McQueen‘s Small Axe miniseries, a collection of interrelated films.
This film looks like it will really showcase John Boyega‘s talent as an actor. He unfortunately didn’t get too much to do in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, so I’m glad to see he’s working with directors that are giving him some meaty material.
Red, White and Blue tells the true story of Leroy Logan, a young forensic scientist with a yearning to do more than his solitary laboratory work. When he sees his father assaulted by two policemen, he finds himself driven to revisiting a childhood ambition to become a police officer; an ambition borne from the naïve hope of wanting to change racist attitudes from within. First, Leroy has to face the consequences of his father’s disapproval, never mind the blatant racism he finds in his new role as a despised yet exemplary Constable in the Metropolitan Police Force. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Steve Toussaint (Prince of Persia) star with talented newcomers Tyrone Huntley, Nathan Vidal and Jaden Oshenye. Red, White and Blue was co-written by Courttia Newland and Steve McQueen.
Red, White and Blue begins streaming December 4, 2020 on Prime Video.
