Continuing to build more excitement for its theatrical release, Spike Lee and the production team for Kickstarter-success Da Sweet Blood of Jesus released the film’s first trailer earlier this week.
Last year, Lee hit the global crowdfunding platform to raise $1,250,000 for his new film project, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. Although he received a ton criticism for turning to the funding method, the actor/director managed to not only receive the initial goal but also scored over $1.4M thanks to nearly 6,500 backers.
According to its synopsis, the romantic thriller is a tale about people who are addicted to blood. Lee noted that the film is “funny, sexy, and blood.” It is considered a new kind of love story and not to be considered a remake of the 1972 movie, Blacula.
Starring in the film is Stephen Tyrone Williams, Zaraah Abrahams, Rami Malek, Elvis Nolasco, and Joie Lee. It is set to hit theaters February 15th.
