Spike Lee Reveals Red Hook Summer Theatrical Poster
Spike Lee Debuts 'Red Hook Summer' Theatrical Poster
Spike Lee has released the fire red artwork for his latest film Red Hook
Summer. This poster was created by Art Sims and 11:24 Creative,
who have designed most of Spike's iconic posters, including Do the Right Thing,
School Daze, Mo Better Blues, Clockers, He Got Game, Crooklyn and many more.
The latest in Spike Lee’s Chronicles of Brooklyn (which also include She’s
Gotta Have It, Do the Right Thing, Crooklyn, Clockers and He Got Game), RED
HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from
middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious
grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red
Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot
as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus
Christ. Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and the culture
shock of inner-city life, Flik’s summer appears to be a total disaster--until
he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the
brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his
grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps
a lot better, than he’d ever imagined.
Get ready! Red Hook Summer opens August 10.
