There is a moment in the trailer that actually left us a little speechless and a little sick to our stomach. 

We won't spoil it here, but we think when you watch the first promo for the record Sundance purchase ($17.5 million) you'll know exactly what we mean. 

The film centres on the slave rebellion of 1871 in Virgina. 

Writer, director, producer and star Nate Parker is about to explode in a very big way. The man looks to have created something special. 

The film also stars Armie Hammer and Gabrielle Union and is slated for a prime awards slot in October.
