Hot off the heels of 2018's award-winning BlacKkKlansman, director Spike Lee has something new in the works. His next movie, Da 5 Bloods, is coming to Netflix on June 12, and the first trailer has been revealed.

Starring Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, and Norm Lewis, the film follows four Vietnam War veterans who return to where they fought to honor their squad leader who died in battle (Chadwick Boseman). Additionally, there's some hidden gold they found and buried during the war, and the surviving men want to dig it up. Check out the trailer below.

Music plays a part in the trailer as "Time Has Come Today" by Chambers Brothers plays for the duration. For the upcoming film, director Lee focused on not just the songs, but their connection to the war.

"We wanted to include the music from one of the greatest albums of all time, in my opinion: Marvin Gaye's What’s Going On," Lee told Variety. "Marvin Gaye's brother, Frankie, did three tours in Vietnam. He was a radio operator. And he would write Marvin all the time, so Marvin was getting a firsthand account from his brother about the horrors of the war. Those letters were really the impetus of one of the greatest albums of all time, so I wanted to include Marvin’s songs."

Da 5 Bloods hits Netflix on June 12.
