  1. When I first heard the trailer for this movie I just kept saying, "Man! This guy sounds exactly like Denzel!" Brought my mom's attention to it she agreed with me. Find out later on that he should being his son and all. Lol excellent job!

  2. I'm so ashamed to admit that I didn't know he's Denzel's son uptil this video. I just watched the trailer, watched the movie, and loved it! Kind of having a crisis rn, how could I miss that. I checked the cast tab on Google!!

  3. This is such a joke, he acts like David Duke is a threat to him; he was in the Klan auxiliary (he was never physically in the Klan, a white officer went to the actual Klan rallies.) David Duke never committed a crime, let alone violence. He was accused of tax issues, but found to have overpaid! His New Orleans Protocol joined white groups nationwide to agree to a zero tolerance policy towards violence, he's probably saved more lives than Ron Stallworth ever did.

  4. It's funny, he did change his voice, just when he first picked up the phone and said "Helloooow…" but then he just dropped it and used his regular voice. OMG I fall off the couch laughing every time I watch what happened after that. The movie is awesome and the 4K Blu-ray is beautiful 🙂 And one other fun part of the movie is like the Beavis and Butt-Head or like Pain & Gain dynamic, where you have a group with different levels of stupidity that play off each other. "The Organization" members are like that… it's hilarious.

  5. Watched blackkklansman while on a trip to england and had nothing to do for 3 hrs so just watched the film without thinking too much. Was blown away and one of the most enjoyable movies ive seen so far

  6. Definitely interested in seeing the movie and Mr. Washington’s acting. He looks exactly like his mom but sounds just like dad and apparently has the talent of both of them, now that’s cool.
