The first trailer of the new Shaft reboot movie is here, and it showcases three generations of Shaft characters that you can’t forget. The exciting fpreview gives a sneak peek into the lives of John Shaft I, John Shaft II, and John Shaft, Jr.


The latest Shaft saga is directed by Tim Story, who had his hands on a few classic movies such as Ride AlongBarbershop, and 2005’s Fanstatic Four. Keep in mind it is also written by Alex Barrow and Kenya Barris, the mastermind behind Black-ish and Grown-ish


The flick chronicles the story of “John Shaft Jr., a cyber security expert with a degree from MIT, "enlists his father's help to uncover the truth behind his best friend's untimely death." With an all-star cast on deck, Shaft will also star Methond Man as Freddie P and Regina Hall, who plays youngest Shaft’s mom – and she’s far from happy about all of the dangerous, action-packed adventure involving her son.


The film hits theaters June 14th and shortly after that on Netflix.
