Spike Lee is a director every film fan should have heard of. Today the trailer for his next film Da 5 Bloods dropped.
The trailer shows us some action packed scenes, combined with some great character moments and amazing cinematography by Newton Thomas Sigel, who also was the cinematographer of the Netflix hit, Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth.
This definitely looks like it has potential to be one of this year’s Oscar contenders, most likely in Best Screenplay, Best Production Design and maybe Best Cinematography, but who knows, maybe it’s going to absolutely dominate the awards season.
