Eddie Huang just released the trailer for his new Focus Features film ‘BOOGIE’ which stars Taylor Takahashi as a Chinese-American kid with huge hoop dreams. Taylour Paige plays his love interest Eleanor and Pop Smoke makes a posthumous film debut as Boogie’s on-court nemesis Monk.
From acclaimed writer, producer, and restaurateur Eddie Huang comes his directorial debut BOOGIE, the coming-of-age story of Alfred “Boogie” Chin, a basketball phenom living in Queens, New York, who dreams of one day playing in the NBA. While his parents pressure him to focus on earning a scholarship to an elite college, Boogie must find a way to navigate a new girlfriend, high school, on-court rivals, and the burden of expectation.

The full cast includes Taylor Takahashi, Taylour Paige, Pamelyn Chee, Mike Moh, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Alexa Mareka, Perry Yung, and the late Pop Smoke.
