Amazon Studios have released the trailer for Steve McQueen’s film Red, White and Blue. The third of five in McQueen’s Small Axe anthology series, the movie follows the true story of Leroy Logan (John Boyega), a forensic scientist who resolves to become a part of the police force to change racist attitudes from within only to become despised despite his exemplary work.
Check out the Red, White and Blue trailer below. The film arrives on Prime Video on December 4th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Red, White and Blue:
Red, White and Blue tells the true story of Leroy Logan, a young forensic scientist with a yearning to do more than his solitary laboratory work. When he sees his father assaulted by two policemen, he finds himself driven to revisiting a childhood ambition to become a police officer; an ambition borne from the naïve hope of wanting to change racist attitudes from within. First, Leroy has to face the consequences of his father’s disapproval, never mind the blatant racism he finds in his new role as a despised yet exemplary Constable in the Metropolitan Police Force. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Steve Toussaint (Prince of Persia) star with talented newcomers Tyrone Huntley, Nathan Vidal and Jaden Oshenye. Red, White and Blue was co-written by Courttia Newland and Steve McQueen.
