Famed director and outspoken Knicks fan, Spike Lee, just released the star-studded new trailer for his upcoming film, “Chiraq.”

Placed in the midst of Chicago’s gun war, Samuel L. Jackson narrates the story of how a group of women did their part to end the violence in their hood.  Dave Chapelle, Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Lala, and more have roles in the film.  Newcomer Teyonnah Parish stars as one of the leads.

According to Esquire:

Chi-Raq is described as a modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata by Aristophanes. “After the murder of a child by a stray bullet, a group of women led by Lysistrata organize against the on-going violence in Chicago’s Southside creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex, and violence in America and around the world.” After premiering in theaters on December 4, Chi-Raq will debut exclusively on Amazon Prime. Not only is Lee back, but he’s back where you’ll actually know he’s back.

We are excited to see the film.  Are you?  Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comment section.
