See You Yesterday Trailer: Going Back is the Only Way Forward
Netflix has released the first trailer for the sci-fi drama See You Yesterday. The film is a feature-length retelling of a short from director Stefon Bristol, who again is back in the director’s chair. Also returning is Spike Lee, who produced Bristol’s short film as well. You can check out the trailer, as well as the film’s poster, below.
High school best friends and science prodigies C.J. and Sebastian spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. But when C.J.’s older brother Calvin dies after an encounter with police officers, the young duo decide to put their unfinished tech to use in a desperate bid to save Calvin. From director Stefon Bristol and producer Spike Lee comes a sci-fi adventure grounded in familial love, cultural divides and the universal urge to change the wrongs of the past.
The feature film stars newcomers Eden Duncan-Smith (Annie) and Danté Crichlow alongside rapper Brian ‘Astro’ Bradley (I Am the Night), Johnathan Nieves (Better Call Saul), Marsha S. Blake (Orange is the New Black), Wavvy Jonez (The Real), Myra Lucretia Taylor (The Big Sick), and Ron Bobb Semple. Executive Producers are Matthew Myers (Irreplaceable You) and Jason Sokoloff (She’s Gotta Have It).
Lee’s most recent directorial feature, BlacKkKlansman, was nominated for six Oscars and took home the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
See You Yesterday will drop on Netflix May 17.
