A teaser for THE HATE U GIVE was released at VidCon 2018 this week, and author Angie Thomas was kind enough to share it with her followers.
On Sunday night, during the BET Awards, a sneak peek of the full trailer for The Hate U Give will be released, but you can see a teaser of it right now! The Hate U Give is an adaptation of the bestselling debut novel by Angie Thomas, which centers on a teenage black girl when her life is upended when she witnesses a white cop shoot her childhood best friend. Check it out below.
Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly 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 police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, and Algee Smith.
Like the book, this movie is aimed to get people talking, and we hope it does help educate more people on racial issues, which is still a very sensitive topic in this era.
The Hate U Give lands in theaters October 19th.
