[Trailer] A Weekend Getaway Turns Deadly Funny In The Trailer For THE BLACKENING

Lionsgate just dropped the trailer for the latest from director Tim Story, who brought us Ride Along, Think Like A Man, and Barbershop and his wicked sense of humor is all over this cabin in the woods slasher – check out THE BLACKENING.

Synopsis:

“The Blackening centers around a group of Black friends who reunite for a Juneteenth weekend getaway only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer. Forced to play by his rules, the friends soon realize this ain’t no motherf****** game. Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and screenplay and screen story by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip, Harlem) & Dewayne Perkins (The Amber Ruffin Show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), The Blackening skewers genre tropes and poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?”

The film stars Grace Byers, Jermaine Fowler, Melvin Gregg, X Mayo, Dewayne Perkins, Antoinette Robertson, and Sinqua Walls, with Jay Pharoah, and Yvonne Orji – and it looks like a ton of fun.

THE BLACKENING hits theaters on June 16th.
