Spike Lee Chiraq

Director Spike Lee unveiled a new trailer for his highly anticipated movie Chi-raq on Tuesday (Nov. 4).

The controversial film, an adaptation of the ancient Greek comedic play Lysistrata, centers on gang violence in Chicago and a group of women’s unique way of stopping the violence. Lysistrata, the protagonist played by Teyonah Parris, leads the women to withhold sex unless their men give up their guns.

The film boasts an impressive cast with stars Samuel L. Jackson, Angela Bassett, Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson and Lala Anthony—just to name a few.

Chi-raq‘s limited release is scheduled for December 4, after which, it will be made available via Amazon Instant Video.
