Boots Riley's "Sorry to Bother You" Looks Insanely Funny from First Trailer

Boots Riley's

Fresh from his turn in Jordan Peele's "Get Out", Stanfield stars as Oakland telemarketer Cassius Green, who affects a white accent in order to be more successful at his job. The man, played by Stanfield as Cassius Green, ventures into the world of telemarketing and appears to hit success when he masters the ability to use his "White voice". You wanna make some money here? Elements like Cassius' disembodied white voice (dubbed by actor/comedian David Cross) or the wildly freaky settings appear in the trailer with so much surreal editing and design, suggesting a strong social thriller element.

However, he soon stumbles onto the freaky, macabre and enigmatic secrets behind the megacorporation he works for, and has to decide if his values and beliefs are worth more to him than money - even if it's a whole lot of money.

The trailer shows off a vibrant visual style to match the snappy dialogue, and it boasts a top-notch cast including Tessa Thompson as Cassius' activist girlfriend Detroit, Terry Crews, Danny Glover, The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun, and Armie Hammer as an ominous CEO.
