Earlier this week (Dec. 5), Netflix announced another addition to it’s 2017 original movie lineup — Burning Sands — and the casting is dope!

The film will star Imani Hakim, Trevor Jackson, Serayah, and Trevante Rhodes, just to name a few, and as you probably guessed from the title, it’ll center around pledges during a Black frat’s Hell Week, as they prepare to cross. One pledge, though, “is torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the intensifying violence of underground hazing.”

Burning Sands will also compete in Sundance’s U.S. Dramatic Competition next month (Jan. 2017).


The trailer for Burning Sands dropped two days ago (February 23), and the premiere date of March 10 was announced. Check the trailer below:
