The trailer for The Hate U Give premiered last night during the BET awards.
Based on the bestselling book of the same name, the movie stars Amandla Stenberg as well as Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, Algee Smith, and Common.
The Hate U Give is author Angie Thomas’s debut novel. It tells the story of teenager Starr Carter, who witnesses the fatal shooting of her best friend at the hands of a police officer.
Starr is already navigating two worlds — the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends — and as her friend’s death makes national headlines, her life grows even more complicated.
Watch the trailer for the movie version, which comes out October 19, below.
