Sorry to Bother You — Red Band Trailer


added: Thu, May 17th '18

It's a psychedelic workplace farce set in the world of telemarketing, in which "Get Out" and "Atlanta" star Lakeith Stanfield plays a financially-strapped underachiever who is accused of being a "sell-out" after he becomes a successful hot-shot telemarketer at a morally questionable Oakland company that encourages their black callers to use their "white voices" to sell products over the phone.

Premiering to mostly positive reviews at Sundance this year, "Sorry to Bother You" also stars Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Armie Hammer (Call Me by Your Name), Terry Crews (Deadpool 2), and Omari Hardwick (Power) with appearances by Danny Glover and Steven Yeun, while comedians Patton Oswalt and David Cross lend their "white guy" voices to the film.

Oakland hip-hop artist/music producer Boots Riley, who once worked as a telemarketer before starting his music career, makes his directorial and writing debut with "Sorry to Bother You," which is set to open in select theaters on July 6th, and will expand across the country on July 13th. Watch the newly-released red band trailer, above.

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.
