Netflix continues to push its striking new wave of original motion pictures. With the February 3 debut of the network’s latest major film, Imperial Dreams, just a week away, the award-winning project’s official lead trailer has emerged. Set in the notorious Los Angeles housing projects known as Imperial Courts, the aptly-titled Imperial Dreams follows a brave, street-seasoned father’s one-man war against everything that stands in the way of his family and a better life and future. Starring Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ John Boyega as the movie’s defiant paternal crusader, Imperial Dreams is billed as a “gangster fairy tale” that shatters the traditional “overcoming the odds” narrative.
