‘White Men Can’t Jump’ Trailer: Sinqua Walls And Jack Harlow Are Ballin’ And Hustlin’ This May On Hulu

Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow are ballin’ and hustlin’ in the new trailer for White Men Can’t Jump. The film is a remake of the classic 1992 Ron Shelton sports comedy headlined by Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Rosie Perez. Calmatic is behind the camera, having recently helmed another remake of a ’90s classic with House Party. 

Not much has changed in terms of plot, as the story still centers on the street b-ball culture, which emphasizes showmanship and betting on yourself when the odds are stacked. Walls plays a promising basketball star who screwed up his shot at the pros, while rap superstar Harlow’s character saw his career derailed by injuries.

Also in the cast are Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Vince Staples, Myles Bullock, and the late Lance Reddic. Kenya Barris and Doug Hall wrote the screenplay.

White Men Can’t Jump streams on Hulu beginning May 19th.

White Men Can’t Jump” is a modern retelling of the iconic 1992 film that celebrates the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his future in the sport, and multi-platinum rap superstar Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his own career. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.
