After battling Talokan in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Letitia Wright is ready to take on the Wild West in her next film, Surrounded. A western that takes place five years after the Civil War, Wright plays Moses Washington, a former Buffalo Soldier who seeks to travel to a gold mine while disguised as a man.

It’s a really interesting concept, especially considering that there aren’t many westerns starring Black protagonists. The post-Civil War element always makes me a little anxious because Hollywood loves slave narratives, but based on the trailer, Surrounded feels more like an action western.

Directed by Anthony Mandler and written by Andrew Pagana & Justin Thomas and Andrew Pagana, the film also stars Jamie Bell and Michael K. Williams in one of his final roles.

Check out the thrilling trailer below. Surrounded premieres on digital, June 20th!

Surrounded Trailer
Five years after the Civil War, freedwoman and former Buffalo Soldier Moses “Mo” Washington travels west to lay claim on a gold mine- the summation of years of toil for Mo and her community. It is a mean, dangerous world for an unaccompanied Black woman in 1870 America and so Mo travels into the deep frontier disguised as a man. After her stagecoach is ambushed by a group of murderous thieves, Mo is forced to hold legendary outlaw Tommy Walsh captive while the remaining surviving passengers seek out help. What ensues is a battle of wills, blurring the line between captor and captive, as they both try to survive the harsh western landscape. Directed by Anthony Mandler and written by Andrew Pagana & Justin Thomas and Andrew Pagana, the film stars Letitia Wright, Jamie Bell, Jeffrey Donovan, with Brett Gelman and Michael K. Williams.
