Spike Lee’s ‘Da 5 Bloods’ Posters Pack A Powerful Message

Could there be a more perfect time for a new Spike Lee joint? I don’t think so, and Netflix hopes you agree. Da 5 Bloods hits the streaming service next week, and in preparation for that a handful of powerful new posters have been unveiled.

Da 5 Bloods finds Lee returning to the battlefield for the first time since 2006’s Miracle at St. Anna. The film stars Delroy Lindo, Norm Lewis, Clarke Peters, and Isiah Whitlock Jr. as a quartet of Vietnam War vets who return to the country to locate the body of their fallen squad leader, played by Chadwick Boseman, and for the promise of buried treasure. The cast includes Jonathan Majors, Paul Walter Hauser, Jean Reno, and Melanie Thierry.

Lee posted one of the new images on Twitter, accompanied by this caption calling for a continued fight for social justice: “Now Our Fight Is For Social Justice Plus Too Many Issues To List At This Moment In Time And Space. DA 5 BLOODS Streams On Netflix In Da Year Of Our Lawd 2020 June 12th. YA-DIG? SHO-NUFF. And Dat’s Da “BLACK LIVES MATTER”,TRUTH,RUTH”

Da 5 Bloods hits Netflix on June 12th.
