First Trailer for Shaft Now Online

The first trailer for New Line Cinema’s Shaft is now online, showing all three generations of the classic character on the same screen. Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Roundtree both return as Shaft, with Jessie T. Usher joining them as John Shaft Jr., the son of Sam Jackson’s Shaft. Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along) from a script by Kenya Barris (Black-Ish).

JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Jesse T. Usher), may be a cyber security expert with a degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ’s youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson) agrees to help his progeny navigate Harlem’s heroin-infested underbelly. And while JJ’s own FBI analyst’s badge may clash with his dad’s trademark leather duster, there’s no denying family. Besides, Shaft’s got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that’s professional and personal.
