‘Sorry to Bother You’ trailer and character posters of Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer and more

A huge hit at Sundance and the feature film debut from writer/director Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother You offers you an alternate present-day version of Oakland, CA where a telemarketer discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.

Sorry to Bother You boasts a killer cast that includes Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead).

Stanfield stars as Cassius “Cash” Green, a telemarketer who realizes he can speak with a “white voice” (played by David Cross). Cassius uses this newfound power to climb the corporate ladder (where he meets up with Hammer’s coke-snorting CEO), much to the chagrin of his activist girlfriend Detroit (Thompson).

Sorry to Bother You can next be seen at the San Francisco International Film Festival in April and then Annapurna will release it in select theaters on July 6 and then wide on July 27th. Here is the first trailer and posters.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
