Rise Above the Noise with the Beats Trailer and Poster

-

Netflix has debuted the trailer and poster for Beats, which will launch globally on the streaming service on June 19, 2019.

In this coming-of-age drama, a reclusive teenage musical prodigy (Khalil Everage) forms an unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard (Anthony Anderson). United by their mutual love of hip hop, they try to free each other from the demons of their past and break into the city’s music scene.

Directed by Chris Robinson (ATL, The New Edition Story), Beats features Everage in his feature film debut and co-stars Uzo Aduba, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Dreezy, and Dave East. Beats is the ultimate ode to Chicago’s South Side, and its long history of creating music that forms the city’s beating heart.

Written by Miles Feldsot, the film was produced by Bob Teitel and Glendon Palmer.

51 Minds Entertainment and Global Road Entertainment are the companies behind the film, which began shooting in Chicago in June of 2018.

Anthony Anderson stars in and is an executive producer of ABC’s black-ish. He also serves as the host of the network’s game show, To Tell the Truth. Uzo Aduba is best known for starring in Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black.
