The They Die By Dawn trailer is now up! There's 2 kinds of directors in the New Hollywood. The kind that make black cowboy epics with Jamie Foxx. And the kind that make Black Cowboy Epics with Erykah Badu, Michael K. Williams, Rosario Dawson, Giancarlo Esposito and Isaiah Washington. That 2nd, far, far doper, kind of director is represented on planet Earth by only one man however: Jeymes Samuel--the Jay Elec-producing, Idris Elba-collaborating, guerilla James Bond theme-writing founder of The Bullitts. Today we get the official trailer for his lesson on how to make a Black Cowboy Epic correctly, They Die By Dawn. And here's betting we're gonna have some more big news (and maybe some music?) from this perfect storm of a flick quicker than you can say "Mama's Gun." Watch the They Die By Dawn trailer below (and see M. K. Williams' exclusive Okayplayer TV interview about the film and working with Erykah Badu here)
