Adjust Comment Print

Set in Oakland, the film follows Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield), a black telemarketer trying to navigate an alternate-reality version of a very white corporate office. He soon finds success when adopting a "white voice" to talk to customers, earning ever-greater sums and getting drawn further into the company thanks to his magical ability and getting fast-tracked as a "power-caller".

After learning how to flawless his "white voice", (voiced by David Cross) Cassius enjoys meteoric success at his job and quickly becomes a "Power Caller" and is invited to join the highest ranks of the company.

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU opens in theaters July 6.

We're talking such glittering luminaries as Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Get Out), Tessa Thompson (Thor Ragnarok, Westworld), and Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name).

In January The Wrap reported that "Annapurna had picked up the Sundance telemarketer drama, which is the directorial debut of Boots Riley and produced by Forest Whitaker's Significants Productions, the studio behind Ryan Coogler's debut feature film, FRUITVALE STATION". If that wasn't enough, there's also Terry Crews, Steven Yeun, Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler, and Danny Glover in it.
