Paramount Pictures have sent us the UK Trailer for Rapman‘s Blue Story. After his highly successful Youtube series Shiro’s Story, the British Grime artist steps up with a Feature Film.
Rapman aka, Andrew Onwubolu directs, produces and writes the script based on his own personal experiences. Whilst Shiro’s Story highlighted the drugs and violence in rap music, this one puts the spotlight on gang violence. Especially in the South Side of London, which Rapman experienced personally.
Rapman himself kicks-off the Trailer and hopes the film can help deliver positive vibes to prevent any more young people being killed…
BLUE STORY is a tragic tale of a friendship between Timmy and Marco, two young boys from opposing postcodes. Timmy, a shy, smart, naive and timid young boy from Deptford, goes to school in Peckham where he strikes up a friendship with Marco, a charismatic, streetwise kid from the local area. Although from warring postcodes, the two quickly form a firm friendship until it is tested and they wind up on rival sides of a street war. Blue Story depicts elements of Rapman’s own personal experiences and aspects of his childhood. The messages he aims to send through his works are positive ones, aimed at inspiring kids from difficult backgrounds to turn away from local gangs.
The film stars Stephen Odubola (The Legend Of Tarzan), Micheal Ward (Top Boy), Khali Best (Eastenders, Endeavour and Shiro’s Story Pt 2), Max Fincham (Pokemon Detective PIkachu, The Alienist), Kadeem Ramsay (Sex Education, My Brother The Devil), Karla-Simone Spence (Wannabe) and Eric Kofi-Abrefa (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Fury).
Blue Story will be in UK Cinemas from 22nd November.
