Metro Boomin releases ‘Heroes and Villains’ short film starring Young Thug, Gunna and more
The film, which is directed by Gibson Hazard, shows off several of the producers’ A-List friends, including Atlanta natives Young Thug and Gunna. The “Heroes & Villains” short film also includes several other heavy hitters, including being narrated by Morgan Freeman and starring LaKeith Standfield.
The short film opens with a monologue by Freeman, where he talks about Metro, the hero in town. “A storm is booming in Metropolis. For years, Metro Boomin has protected the city from the unrelenting threat of evil … With the light of the Boomanati headquarters, once a beacon of hope, has gone dark. In Metro’s absence, villains rise from the shadows.” As Standfield takes on the role of the villain and rides through the fictional metropolis, setting it on fire, we hear snippets of several new tracks from the upcoming album. Artists such as 21 Savage, Future, Chris Brown and others appear on the tracks.
Viewers also get to see Gunna and Young Thug hilariously take on the role of news anchors for P News.
