Red band trailer

Just saw it last night, having heard of it but not knowing much about it.

It's good.  It's a fairy tale of late-stage capitalism set in a parallel-universe/near-future Oakland.  There's a bit of Idiocracy and a bit of Get Out in there.

As an ex-Oaklander I feel obligated to see that.  Looked pretty though!

Is it really filmed in Oakland, or is it filmed in "Oakland" (Atlanta) like Black Panther? 

Regardless, I want to see this movie.

It's very recognizably Oakland if you're a resident.

The director and writer, Boots Riley is also the frontman for The Coup, which is a local funkish political hip hop group. The script for this has been hanging around for years. It was published in McSweeney's a few years back, and The Coup has an album with the same name inspired by it, which is worth a look if you're at all interested in such things.
