shaft red band trailer samuel l. jackson

Warner Bros. Pictures shares a new Red Band trailer for Tim Story’s Shaft ahead of next week’s theatrical release. Starring Samuel L. Jackson as the titular character, the 2019 reboot ushers in the next chapter in the movie franchise featuring the baddest private eye in New York City.

This year’s Shaft finds John Shaft Jr., aka JJ, enlisting the help of his father to uncover the truth about the untimely death of his best friend. While largely absent during his son’s upbringing, John Shaft agrees to utilize his expertise to aid in JJ’s efforts to learn more about his friend’s passing and ultimately maneuver throughout Harlem’s heroin-infested underbelly.

Jessie T. Usher stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson as John Shaft Jr., while Regina Hall, Alexandra Shipp, Matt Lauria, Titus Welliver, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, and Richard Roundtree, the original John Shaft, also feature. Directed by Tim Story of the Ride Along and Think Like a Man franchises, Shaft comes to theaters June 14.

Not NYC, not LA.
