Ever since the 70s, Shaft has always been considered to be the \u2018black James Bond\u2019 and it was only a matter of time before we got a reboot\/sequel in theaters. Now New Line Cinema has dropped a new trailer for Shaft, and it features appearances from three generations of John Shaft.\r\n\r\nCheck it:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=lD41XdWcmbY\r\n\r\nJJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Usher), maybe a cybersecurity expert with a degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend\u2019s untimely death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ\u2019s youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft (Jackson) agrees to help his progeny navigate Harlem\u2019s heroin-infested underbelly. And while JJ\u2019s own FBI analyst\u2019s badge may clash with his dad\u2019s trademark leather duster, there\u2019s no denying family. Besides, Shaft\u2019s got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that\u2019s professional and personal.\r\n\r\nWhat I love about the trailer is that it even embraces the more questionable elements of the original films\u2014especially the part where Shaft used to hit women. The trailer has Shaft II attempt to hit a woman only to be stopped by Shaft Jr. \u00a0for being \u2018mysoginistic\u2019. I think only Samuel L. Jackson could ever justify lines where he says that hitting women is non-sexist since he\u2019s an \u2018equal opportunity ass-whooper.\u2019\r\n\r\nThe movie actually looks pretty fun, and I\u2019m sure a lot of people would love to see what it would be like to have three different Shaft characters come onscreen together. Arguably Jackson has the most presence of the three, but it\u2019s also cool that original Shaft Richard Roundtree agreed to make a comeback for this movie.\r\n\r\nCatch Shaft in theaters June 14.
