Just wow! Nate Parker’sThe Birth of a Nation‘ now has a teaser trailer and it looks unbelievably amazing. The film premiered at Sundance this year and it got rave reviews and scored the highest deal ever made at Sundance, which was over $17.5 million from Fox Searchlight. The film is set to release on October 7th of this year and I bet it will be nominated for a ton of awards.

This is Nate Parker’s first directorial effort and he stars in the film too as Nat Turner, who is a religious slave who becomes a preacher and leads the bloodiest slave rebellion in history. Armie Hammer plays the slave owener with Penelope Ann Miller, Jackie Earle Haley, and Aja Naomi King co-starring. This film is quite the endeavor, even for the most seasoned directors, but from all the amazing reviews, it seems that Parker hit a home-run. This is one film you’ll want to see.

Official Synopsis: Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities — against himself and his fellow slaves — Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Enjoy the trailer!

Movie Quotes

Dr. Evil:
Gentlemen, I have a plan. It's called blackmail. The Royal Family of Britain are the wealthiest landowners in the world. Either the Royal Family pays us an exorbitant amount of money, or we make it seen that Prince Charles has had an affair outside of marriage and therefore would have to divorce!
Number Two:
Prince Charles *did* have an affair. He admitted it, and they are now divorced.
Dr. Evil:
Right, people you have to tell me these things, okay? I've been frozen for thirty years, okay? Throw me a frickin' bone here! I'm the boss! Need the info.
[pause]
Dr. Evil:
Okay no problem. Here's my second plan. Back in the 60's, I had a weather changing machine that was, in essence, a sophisticated heat beam which we called a "laser." Using these "lasers," we punch a hole in the protective layer around the Earth, which we scientists call the "Ozone Layer." Slowly but surely, ultraviolet rays would pour in, increasing the risk of skin cancer. That is unless the world pays us a hefty ransom.
Number Two:
[pause] That also already has happened.
Dr. Evil:
Shit. Oh hell, let's just do what we always do. Hijack some nuclear weapons and hold the world hostage. Yeah? Good! Gentlemen, it has come to my attention that a breakaway Russian Republic called Kreplachistan will be transferring a nuclear warhead to the United Nations in a few days. Here's the plan. We get the warhead and we hold the world ransom for... ONE MILLION DOLLARS!
Number Two:
Don't you think we should ask for *more* than a million dollars? A million dollars isn't exactly a lot of money these days. Virtucon alone makes over 9 billion dollars a year!
Dr. Evil:
Really? That's a lot of money.
[pause]
Dr. Evil:
Okay then, we hold the world ransom for...
Dr. Evil:
One... Hundred... BILLION DOLLARS!
