Amazon announced, at the start of the year, that they will start making original films to be released in theaters and for free on Prime Instant Video. The first of their original films, Chi-Raq, has just seen its first trailer released. Spike Lee’s new film for Amazon centers on gang violence in Chicago and is based on the Greek comedy “Lysistrata.” The movie stars Teyonah Parris, along with Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Cusack. Chi-Raq is set to hit theaters on December 4th and is expected to be available on Prime Video a month or two later.
