After much buzz, the trailer for the upcoming Nas-produced drama "The Film" has arrived online, providing a short, three-minute glimpse into the gritty Sundance Film Festival favorite. In it, we find a ragtag group of skateboarders go through an action-packed coming of age experience that finds them caught up in the midst of a paranoia-ridden drug enterprise.

The film, set to hit theaters (and Video On Demand) July 29th, is written and directed by Stephen Caple Jr., with starring roles by Erykah Badu, Machine Gun Kelly, Michael K. Williams, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Moises Arias, Kim Coates, Rafi Gavron, Ezri Walker and more. Last month, the premiere of French Montana's "Figure It Out," also featuring Kanye West and Nas, helped kickoff the promo as one of the many original music contributions for the film and the soundtrack. Pusha T, Jeremih, Erykah Badu, and MGK are also set to contribute music.

In addition to his role as executive producer of the film, Nas will also executive produce the soundtrack.

"The Land" arrives July 29.
