Aside from The Big Sick, one of the other major acquisitions at Sundance this year was Patti Cake$, the story of a female rapper who chases her dream of escaping her hard knock life in New Jersey. Fox Searchlight picked up the movie for $10.5 million after a massive bidding war and now they are bringing it to theatres just in time to close out the summer. The movie marks the directorial debut of music video director Geremy Jasper, who was also nominated for a Golden Camera (Best First Feature Film) at Cannes. Could this be the next Hustle & Flow? Patti Cake$ hits select theatres on Aug. 18th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
