While we brought you a teaser trailer for the racial satire Dear White People a month or so ago, the new official trailer for the film is now available. To be quite honest, I prefer this new cut to the previous one since it gives a much better sense of the comedy’s tone. There’s plenty of social commentary to be found and it appears as if no topic is out of bounds, be it weaves, interracial dating, or the definition of racism itself. I fully expect lots of nervous laughter in theaters later this fall.
Written and directed by Justin Simien, Dear White People stars Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P. Bell, Kyle Gallner, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Marque Richardson, and Dennis Haysbert, and opens in theaters October 17th. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.
