20th Century Fox has released the first trailer and new stills for THE HATE U GIVE movie. Directed by George Tillman, Jr., the film stars Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, KJ Apa, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, Issa Rae, Sabrina Carpenter, with Common and Anthony Mackie.
Based upon the New York Times best selling novel by Angie Thomas, the film follows Starr Carter who constantly switches between two worlds: the poor, predominantly black neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends.
The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a white police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right, no matter the cost.
THE HATE U GIVE arrives in theaters on October 19, 2018!
