Netflix released the first trailer for the new Spike Lee-produced sci-fi drama See You Yesterday starring Eden Duncan-Smith (Roxanne, Roxanne) and Dante Crichlow. The pic is based on a short film of the same title, which was released back in 2017 and was a finalist at the HBO Short Film Competition at the American Black Film Festival.
Helmed by a first-time director Stefon Bristol, the movie follows two high school science prodigies Claudette “C.J.” Walker and Sebastian J. Thomas, who have found a way to travel back in time and save C.J.’s brother, Calvin, from being wrongfully killed by a police officer.
The cast also includes Rapper Brian ‘Astro’ Bradley (Billy Lynn’s Halftime Walk), Johnathan Nieves (Better Call Saul), Marsha Stephanie Blake (Orange is the New Black), Wavvy Jonez (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.), and Myra Lucretia Taylor (The Big Sick).
See You Yesterday is set to premiere on the streaming service on May 17th. Check out the full trailer below.
