Watch a Teaser for ‘The Hate U Give’ + Trailer to Debut Sunday

By

The wait is almost over for one of the year’s most anticipated and most relevant and important films.

The first trailer for The Hate U Give will be released on Sunday, according to author Angie Thomas. A sneak peek will debut during the BET Awards on Sunday night (which airs 8pm on BET) before the entire trailer is posted online at TheHateUGive.com.

But before that trailer release on Sunday, Fox debuted a The Hate U Give teaser at VidCon, which Thomas shared on her Twitter. We get our first look at our protagonist Starr Carter

Here’s a brief synopsis of the film from its official site:

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, and Algee Smith.

The Hate U Give hits theaters on Oct. 19.
