SANTA MONICA, CA (October 9, 2018) – Witness the film that had everyone buzzing at the 2018 SXSW and Sundance Film Festivals when Blindspotting arrives on Digital November 6 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On Demand November 20 from Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate company. An incredibly relevant film for the current climate that has received phenomenal reactions and reviews, Blindspotting provides a raw glimpse into three days in the life of a parolee and the struggles of race, class, and police brutality in Oakland, California. The film stars Daveed Diggs (Wonder, Ferdinand, TV’s “Black-ish,” Broadway’s Hamilton), Rafael Casal (TV’s “HBO’s Def Poetry Jam”), Janina Gavankar (TV’s “The League,” “True Blood,” “The L Word,” “Sleepy Hollow”), and Jasmine Cephas Jones (Monsters and Men, Broadway’s Hamilton).

Collin (Diggs), a parolee facing his final three days of probation, needs to stay clear of trouble. Miles, (Casal), Collin’s hot-tempered best friend, can’t stay out of it. When Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested, sending Collin and Miles on a collision course with each other in this bold and thought-provoking film that bursts with energy, style, and humor.
