Watch: Spike Lee’s “Red Hook Summer” Movie Trailer

23 years after the fact, Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing reigns as one of the famous director’s most complete movies. Lee looks to revisit that world in Red Hook Summer, a film about a boy from Atlanta spending the summer with his God-fearing grandfather in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood. No lie, the synopsis alone makes Red Hook sound like a Tyler Perry offshoot, but we’ll give Lee the benefit of the doubt. He has enough classics under his belt to earn the right, and the thought of Lee out-doing Perry at his own game is an idea worth hoping for.

And the movie nerds in the audience will definitely go home happy: Mookie from Do The Right Thing will make a cameo appearance. That alone should stir some intrigue.

Look for Summer… to hit theaters in early August.
