Spike Lee’s Vietnam Movie ‘The 5 Blood’ Drops Trailer – Various1 min read
Netflix has released the official trailer for Oscar-winning director Spike Lee’s new movie “The 5 Bloods”.
The movie features four veteran tales of Paul (Delroy Lindo), Otis (Clark Peters), Eddie (Norm Lewis) and Melvin (Isaiah Whitlock, Jr.) who return to Vietnam in search of the cemetery and his remains. Connected with Paul’s son (Jonathan Majors), the four vets embark on an adventure that helps them cope with their injuries.
Other cast members include Melania Thierry, Paul Walter Hauser, Jasper Pakkenen, Johnny Tree Nugayan, Van Veronica Engo and Jean Reno.
The trailer flashed between vintage footage of the Vietnam War and four veterans touring their repatriated country, serving as the Chamber Brothers’ iconic “Time Came Today” theme song. One scene of friends is shown as a young soldier in battle, and is being danced in a club with “Apocalypse Now” meaning playing in the background. Clips of war protests, Nixon’s resignation speech, and their buried treasure hunters all end with two minutes and 30 seconds of fists rising in the air throughout the trailer.
Lee won his first Academy Award in 1920 for his adaptive screenplay for “Blackclash Clansman”, which also had nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. Her film credits include “Do the Right Thing,” “She’s Here It Is,” “The 25th Hour,” and “Malcolm X.”
“The 5 Bloods” premiered on Netflix on June 12th.
