First Trailer for Gina Prince-Bythewood's 'Beyond the Lights' Debuts (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nate Parker Star)

Above is a first trailer for the BET/Relativity Media-backed next feature film from writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood, now titled "Beyond the Lights" (previously, "Blackbird").

The film’s official synopsis reads:

Blackbird is the story of Noni Jean, a hot new artist who has just won a Grammy and is primed for stardom. But the pressures of success compel her to nearly end her life until she is saved by a young police officer. They fall hard for each other, despite the protests of their parents who want each to focus on their own career ambitions. But he might be the missing piece to unlock her artistic potential. 

Bythewood’s "Beyond the Lights" stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker. Danny Glover and Minnie Driver co-star.

Stephanie Allain is producer. Relativity president Tucker Tooley is exec producing with Matt Alvarez and Reggie Bythewood.

"Beyond the Lights" will be released theatrically by Relativity, with an official release date now set for November 14, 2014. After that, it’ll have an exclusive television premiere in the U.S. and South Africa on BET.

This will be Bythewood’s first feature film directorial effort since 2008’s "The Secret Life of Bees."

Seems like an odd follow-up to Belle, but I'm glad GuGu is staying active.

Can't wait to see this. I love GP-B 's work and I'm a huge fan of Nate Parker.
