Watch The Trailer for ‘Monster’

I wasn’t that excited about the next Netflix movie, Monster, based on the novel of the same name by Walter Dean Myers.

A talented teen implicated in a robbery-turned-murder fight for his innocence and integrity against a criminal justice system that’s already judged him.

Okay. Sounds interesting but maybe something I’ve seen before a few times already. Then I saw the trailer:

  • Okay. It stars Kelvin Harrison Jr. who has been killing the last few years.
  • Jefferey Wright and Jennifer Hudson are playing his parents? How old is Jennifer Hudson?
  • The song that plays in the Monster movie trailer is “Devil That I Know” by Jacob Banks. Gives the clip a melancholy vibe.
  • From Executive Producers by John Legend, Nasir ‘Nas’ Jones, and Jeffery Wright? Didn’t expect that.
  • Speaking of which, didn’t expect to see A$AP Rocky show in the trailer. As a thug.
  • That goes for John David Washington too. Also playing a thug.
  • Nasir Jones also shows up as a prisoner too.

Okay. I’m in. Monster drops on Netflix on May 7th.
