This is not a remake of the 1915 film about the Klan. It is an original 2016 film about Nat Turner, a man of God who led a slave uprising in 1831. It stars Nate Parker, who wrote, directed and produced the film. It comes out this October.
The song in the trailer is Nina Simone’s cover of “Strange Fruit”.
The Scripture that Turner is quoting at the end is Psalm 149:5-9:
Let the saints be joyful in glory.
Let the high praise of God be on the mouths of the saints and a two-edged sword in their hand
to execute vengeance on the demonic nations and punishment on those peoples,
to bind their kings with chains.
This honour have all his saints.
Praise the lord, praise the lord, sing to him a new song.
In the King James Bible, it has “the heathen” where Turner says “demonic nations”. That might be an update for the sake of 2016 audiences..
