Here is a FIRST LOOK at the critical hit and Sundance Film Festival audience favorite, “Dope.”

In “Dope” Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.

The film is directed by Rick Famuyiwa and produced by Forest Whitaker. Multi-Grammy winner Pharrell Williams serves as Executive Producer along with Co-Executive Producer, Sean Combs.
