“The Kitchen” is co-directed by Daniel Kaluuya and Kibwe Tavares.

Netflix drops the trailer of the movie “The Kitchen.”

The trailer begins with the visual of a dystopian London, where Izi (Robinson) is in a solitary-like place. Moreover, he wants to leave “The Kitchen,” the place he lives. Then he meets a boy, Benji (Bannerman), his son from his ex-girlfriend, who arrives in the Kitchen. Izi, Benji and the residents of The Kitchen fight back against the powers that want to destroy it.

It stars Kane Robinson, also known as Kano, Jedaiah Bannerman, Hope Ikpoku Jr, Ian Wright, BackRoad Gee, Cristale, Teija Kabs and Demmy Ladipo. Co-directed by Daniel Kaluuya and Kibwe Tavares. With this movie, both Daniel and Kibwe will make their directorial debut. The screenwriters are Daniel Kaluuya and Joe Murtagh. In 2020, Daniel won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Judas and the Black Messiah.

“We wanted to make a seminal London film, so we looked at the seminal city films,” Kaluuya tells Empire. He added, “Do The Right Thing, La Haine, The Prophet, This Is England. We were just inspired by it all, and wanted to build upon the amazing work that the people before us have done, and do our own version of it.”

The Kitchen was premiered as the Closing Night Gala film at the BFI London Film Festival 2023.

The Kitchen will drop on Netflix on January 19. Watch the trailer below.
