The first trailer for Spike Lee's provocative drama BlacKkKlansman has arrived. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department's rank and file. And based on some early reactions from Cannes, it just might be.

Lee (Malcom X, Inside Man) directed BlacKkKlansman, producing alongside Peele through his Monkeypaw Productions banner. "As much as BlacKkKlansman plays with the mechanics of blaxploitation fantasy, it doesn't leave one with any question about what's real". "So, I was immediately obsessed with this story". 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.

It's Lee's first traditional feature film since 2015's Chi-Raq, having directed theater/cinema hybrids Rodney King and Pass Over since.

He will choose a team of writers known for their work in the genre and will also introduce audiences to exciting new filmmakers. Meanwhile, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss' new dating competition series The Proposal will debut Monday, June 18 at 10 pm.

Lee was famously overlooked for the Palme d'Or in 1989 for Do the Right Thing, with the highest Cannes honor that year going to Steven Soderbergh's sex, lies, and videotape. The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw tweeted that it "lights up like a pinball machine" while Indiewire's David Ehrlich said it was "a wildly uneven but righteous fuck you to Trump".

The two-minute clip was shared on Twitter on Monday as the film was screened at Cannes, where reports say it received a lengthy standing ovation. The film will see general release on August 10, 2018.
