20th Century Fox has just released the first image from the movie adaptation of Angie Thomas’ bestseller THE HATE U GIVE.
We have the first image from The Hate U Give movie, which is based on Angie Thomas’ debut novel, which also happens to be a critically acclaimed bestseller. Regardless of its label as a YA book, this is one of those books that has importance in America’s current social status. We can’t wait to see it, and we hope it gets more people thinking.
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 and Issa Rae.
The Hate U Give has no specific release date as of yet, but is scheduled for release later this year.
