After getting our first look just last month, Sony Pictures shares the full-length trailer for Charm City Kings starring Meek Mill. An adaptation of Lofty Nathan’s 12 O’Clock Boys documentary, the film is directed by Angel Manuel Soto and executive produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, as the script was co-written by Barry Jenkins of Moonlight.
Charm City Kings tells the story of a teenager who goes by Mouse (played by Jahi Di’allo Winston). Set in West Baltimore, Mouse wants nothing more than to be a part of the city’s dirty bike scene. This leaves him feeling an intense pull from two opposing forces, however. On one side there is notorious ex-con Blax (played by Meek Mill), and on the other is a concerned detective (played by William Catlett). Mouse’s mother (played by Teyonah Parris) fears her son will follow in the footsteps of his older brother who lost his life due to gang involvement.
Press play below to watch the first full-length trailer for Charm City Kings, which releases in select cities April 10 and nationwide April 17.
