Warner Bros. has dropped off a new visual for its upcoming film, Shaft. Clocking it an under two minutes, the red band trailer is a comically vulgar look at the Samuel L. Jackson-led flick filled with obscenities covering a wide range of NSFW topics.
Shaft serves as a direct sequel to the 2000 installment of the same name, directed by the late John Singleton. The movie focuses on FBI agent John “JJ” Shaft, Jr. (Jessie Usher), son of Jackson’s character, and his quest to uncover the truth about the untimely death of his best friend. Tapping the help of his private investigator father and his legendary retired PI granduncle John Shaft (Richard Roundtree), the elders steer the young man through the heroin-infested underbelly of Harlem. With three Shaft generations all working on one case, their individually-distinct methods of solving crime are sure to create problems.
Watch the full trailer above. Shaft premieres June 14 in the United States, and June 28 worldwide and on Netflix.
