Getting to the big leagues is hard.
On Tuesday, the first trailer dropped for “Boogie”, the directorial debut of Fresh Off the Boat author Eddie Huang.
The film stars Taylor Takahashi as Alfred “Boogie” Chin, a teenage high school basketball star with dreams of playing in the NBA.
But before that can happen, he has to get a scholarship to an elite university, deal with pressure from his parents, and more.
Taylour Paige, Pamelyn Chee, Mike Moh, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Alexa Mareka, Perry Yung, and the late Pop Smoke also star in the film.
Smoke was killed in a home invasion in February 2020 at the age of 20.
Shortly after the rapper’s death, Huang shared a touching video of him meeting Smoke for the first time.
“Boogie” hits theatres March 5.
