Watch Dorian Missick and Yaya Alafia in ‘Big Words’ Trailer (Video)
The new trailer for AFFRM’s summer theatrical release of Neil Drumming‘s Big Words has hit the web, and it offers a new perspective on friendship.
The film is set on the eve of Obama’s historic election in which members of a once-promising hip-hop group struggle with regret, disappointment and change.
Big Words is centered around three former members of a promising hip-hop crew who cross paths again to discover that some things never change. Former frontman John (Dorian Missick), once known as Big Words, is now a working class guy who raps only to himself. James (Gbenga Akinnagbe)is a publicist living with his boyfriend, far removed from the days when he rhymed about getting girls. And, DJ Malik (Darien Sills-Evans) still spins records with a longing for the glory days. Together again on this landmark occasion, the pals reckon with dreams deferred and new hopes.
The film also stars Yaya Alafia (formerly Yaya Dacosta), Zachary Booth, Jean Grae and Amir Arison.
Big Words opens in NYC and Los Angeles on July 19.
