Some folks are trapped at home, while others take to the streets to fight for human rights. It feels like the right time to release a movie focused on African Americans made by an Oscar-winning director of colour, who never holds back from the subject on many people's minds today.
Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods lands on Netflix next Friday, and it focuses on five Vietnam veterans who return to their former battlefield to claim the body of their squad leader, and any treasures he might have hid.

The cast is pure talent too, with Delroy Lindo (The Good Fight), Clarke Peters (The Wire), Norm Lewis (Mrs. American), and Isiah Whitlock Jr. (BlackKklansman) as the soldiers. Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) plays the squad leader.
