The official trailer for City of Lies has been released. Watch it above and read about it a bit below…
What is City of Lies all about?
From the official trailer on YouTube, we’ve got a big of a description here on what could go down as one of those could-be-amazing movies and I really hope they don’t blow it here. But here’s the thing, it’s a “never-before-seen look at the infamous murder of The Notorious B.I.G. shortly following the death of Tupac” which is a seriously wicked subject to try and capture on screen.
Guess who’s in the movie tho
L.A.P.D. detective Russell Poole is played by effing Johnny Depp, and he’s joined by “Jack” Jackson — Forest Whitaker, not the banana pancakes guy — which is a perfect white guy plus black guy movie trope delivered. Even more trope-y is what we see unfold as the movie progresses…
In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies. Relentless in their hunt, these two determined men threaten to uncover the conspiracy and crack the foundation of the L.A.P.D. and an entire city.
Interesting to say the least, and I’ll definitely hold out further judgment until I can actually see more of the trailer and the movie when it gets released.
