The Big Sick may be the latest entry in the Judd Apatow lifts gifted comics to the next level sweepstakes, but it is very much not a Judd Apatow film.

Z: The Beginning of Everything begins with Zelda Sayre meeting F. Scott Fitzgerald and follows her life in what is being described by the streaming service as ‘a ground-breaking concept: a fictionalized bio series.’

Spike Lee can serve up sharp, subtle satire and he can serve up the blunt-upside-your-head kind with equal facility.
With Chi-Raq, he looks at the moment in time the death toll in the city of Chicago outpaced the death toll on American soldiers in Iraq – and both of his satirical big guns are fully loaded via, of all things, a classic ancient Greek play – Lysistrata, in which the women of Greece withheld sex from their men until they ended the Peloponnisian War.
Check out the cutting first trailer for Chi-Raq following the jump. Chi-Raq is in theaters on December 4th.
