First Trailer for "The Hate U Give" #book2movie

Book Cover for The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas coming to the screen



I saw this on twitter this morning and had to give this a shout out. Technically YA the novel is much more than its genre and was on the list for the National Book Award and received the Coretta Scott King Award. It comes with a huge message about life in the US right this very moment. 




The Hate U Give stars Amandla Sternberg as Starr (Everything EverythingThe Hunger Games), Anthony Mackie, Common, Issa Rae (HBO's Insecure) Russell Hornsby also star. Audrey Wells (Under the Tuscan Sun, The Truth about Cats and Dogs) wrote the screenplay with George Tillman (This is Us, Notorious) directs. 




The storyline

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.
Watch the trailer below. It’s feeling all too real to me right now.



About the book

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban 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. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
