Netflix is up to it again! This time, Spike Lee takes you to Vietnam in his next movie Da 5 Bloods, premiering June 12th!
If the above trailer (set to The Chamber Brothers’ signature 1967 single “Time Has Come Today”) doesn’t make you wanna write the release date on a calendar, check your pulse. Lee has done a great job of intertwining archival footage from the Vietnam War with two parallel stories involving aging veterans! Great job.
The concept: Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. return to Vietnam in the present day to search for the remains of their fallen squad leader, played by Chadwick Boseman. But they’re also looking for buried treasure. What a great idea! That’s something you could believe might have actually happened during the war.
Da 5 Bloods also stars Mélanie Thierry, Paul Walter Hauser, Jasper Pääkkönen, Johnny Trí Nguyễn, Van Veronica Ngo and Jean Reno.
This trailer looks incredible. What’s the best “Vietnam” movie all-time?
