Get Out duo Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield unite in the latest trailer for historical thriller Judas and the Black Messiah.

Surrounded by acting royalty Martin Sheen and Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemons, Kaluuya and Stanfield star as Black Panther Party leader Fred Hampton and informant William O'Neal respectively.

If this one has so far bypassed your radar, its heart-racing footage will certainly get you hyped for what promises to be a memorable spectacle.

Discussing the movie's contemporary themes, such as police brutality and Black freedom, director Shaka King previously told Digital Spy and other media: "The attitude of the audience is quite up to the message that you're trying to convey.

"I don't just think about what will, what should audiences take away from the movie now but what the audience is picking up one year, five years later, and who knows when this movie comes out what the world will look like."
