2017 Movies: Imperial Dreams (Trailer Song)
Netflix has released the official trailer for its original film Imperial Dreams, scheduled to launch globally on February 3.
Written and directed by Malik Vitthal, the film, set in Watts, LA, follows a reformed gangster and father of a little boy who struggles to build a better life for the latter. With John Boyega in the leading role, Imperial Dreams stars also Rotimi Akinosho, Glenn Plummer, Keke Palmer, Sufe Bradshaw, De’Aundre Bonds, Maximiliano Hernández and others.
The trailer features the young father willing to teach kids not to make the same mistakes he did (and for which he paid by serving time), and remaining after a roof over his head when a friend asks him to leave his house, together with the boy, even though he knows the two have no place to stay. Violent scenes are also depicted in the promo, which shows also some of the positive reviews the film received after its world premiere, with Boyega’s performance highly praised and described as “simply terrific”.
The song used in the trailer is “Transcendence” by Jon Dix.
