The latest film from Spike Lee, titled ‘Da 5 Bloods’, about four African American war veterans on a journey back to Vietnam, will be available on Netflix on June 12.
‘Da 5 Bloods’ follows four African American veterans Vietnam seeking the remains of their fallen Squad Leader and the gold fortune he helped them hide. Its cast includes Chadwick Boseman, known for his role in Marvel’s ‘The Black Panther,’ Jean Reno, and Vietnamese actress and performer Ngo Thanh Van (Veronica Ngo).
