This collection of trailers will get you as excited as we are about what’s coming to theaters this summer and fall…

▁▁▁

This is Congo

In theaters June 29 (NY & LA)

Director: Daniel McCabe

Story: Meet four individuals surviving within Africa’s longest continuing conflict—a whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor.

Critical reception: “McCabe lets his subjects tell their own stories. [Their] words play over vivid footage of everyday moments and extraordinary happenings. Often, the former is the latter and vice versa.” —Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

Sorry to Bother You

Director: Boots Riley

Monsters and Men
