Fans are exceptionally eager to see Chadwick Boseman in his new role. The script was provided by Lee, Kevin Willmott, Danny Bilson, and Paul De Meo.
Plot of Da 5 Bloods
In the trailer, we can see the film revolves around the Lives of Four African Americans who served the country during the Vietnam War.
The film is part war story, part treasure hunt, and is totally outlined in the ’70s. The movie finds four veterans, Paul, Otis, Eddie and Melvin, on an intricate journey to discover the remains of their fallen squad leader and the gold they buried in Vietnam, the very place where they fought a war for a special cause. The men are accompanied by Paul’s son.
According to the official statement, “These heroes battle forces of humanity and nature while confronted by the lasting ravages of the immorality of the Vietnam War.”
The trailer incorporates the historic footage with glimpses of a twin storyline. First story is set during the war itself, shot in a vintage style, whereas the second story is set in the modern-day return of the veterans. The veterans are tussling with the consequences of the conflict.
The film is expected to explore the racial politics and the racism that black people had to suffer in America during the 1960s, especially the situation after the assassination of Martin Luther King which enraged the Black community and it affected the whole Country with U.S. Armed Forces almost collapsing. According to the director what happens after all of this is the crucial part of the film.
The trailer is a mix of past and present and is soundtracked by the strident sounds of “The Time Has Come Today” by the Chambers Brothers.
