(Shadow & Act Exclusive): Here's the theatrical trailer for the film, Destined, due in theaters on November 17.
It stars Cory Hardrict, Hill Harper, La La Anthony, and Jesse Metcalfe. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
Through the parallel stories of two young men, Sheed and Rasheed (both played by Cory Hardrict), Destined explores how the smallest incident can manifest itself into a life-changing event. In one world, Sheed is a hardened criminal who has spent years building his drug empire. In another, Rasheed is an ambitious architect who has been working his way up the corporate ladder. Through the lens of parallel realities and lives, Destined explores how one man's future can be changed by a single moment. As they navigate their respective worlds, they face similar dilemmas – street violence to corporate corruption — demonstrating that on any path, life is never simple and the journey toward fulfilling your destiny is always full of choices.
The film is directed and written by Qasim Basir. Tommy Oliver, Rick Rosenthal, Matt Ratner, and Codie Elaine Oliver produce. Cinematography is by Carmen Cabana and editing is by René Besson. Music by John Jennings Boyd. Destined is distributed by XLrator Media.
