First poster for Spike Lee’s ‘Red Hook Summer’

'Red Hook Summer' Theatrical Poster Here’s the stylized poster for the new Spike Lee joint Red Hook Summer. The poster pays homage to Lee’s Crooklyn with it’s color scheme and cast infront of a Brooklyn neighborhood dwelling.

The film sees Jules Brown as a young boy from Atlanta who’s sent to Brooklyn to spend the summer with his religious grandfather (Clarke Peters) in this coming of age tale. Amidst all of the drama, Brown finds solace in a new friend (Tony Lysaith) he meets at church.

The official synopsis reads:

Red Hook Summer is the latest in Spike Lee’s Chronicles of Brooklyn (which also include SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT, DO THE RIGHT THING, CROOKLYN, CLOCKERS, and HE GOT GAME), RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik’s summer appears to be a total disaster–until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he’d ever imagined.
