Someone with special powers has released a trailer for the genre-bending film Sleight, and we thank them for it. Check it out below.
The film originally premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. WWE Studios and Blumhouse Tilt then quickly snatch up the distribution rights. I don’t blame them either.
Synopsis: A young street magician is left to care for his little sister after their parents passing and turns to illegal activities to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets in too deep, his sister is kidnapped and he is forced to use his magic and brilliant mind to save her.
“…we can do whatever we want. If we just believe we are able to.”
Sleight is directed by J.D. Dillard who also wrote the film with Alex Theurer. The film was produced by Diablo Entertainment.
The film stars Jacob Latimore, Seychelle Gabriel, Dulé Hill, Storm Reid, Sasheer Zamata and Michael Villar.
Sleight is scheduled to be released on April 28th, 2017.
