It was due to arrive tomorrow but it seems to have dropped early courtesy of MTV (H/T FirstShowing) – the first teaser trailer for JD Dillard’s upcoming indie magician breakout Sleight has arrive. The film screened at Sundance this year to very positive reviews, and we are very curious to see how this turns out. Watch the trailer below:
A young street magician is left to take care of his little sister after his mother’s passing and turns to drug dealing in the Los Angeles party scene to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets into trouble with his supplier, his sister is kidnapped and he is forced to rely on both his sleight of hand and brilliant mind to save her.
Starring Jacob Latimore, Dule Hill and Seychelle Gabriel, Sleight is released in the U.S. on April 7, 2017.
