An amazing trailer has been released for Michael Jai White‘s blaxploitation flick, Black Dynamite. Not only does White star in the film but he also co-wrote the script alongside director Scott Sanders. The film overly dramatizes everything you love about 1970′s African American cinema and turns it into a modern day action comedy.
Are you ready for some Black Dynamite?
This is the story of 1970s African-American action legend Black Dynamite. The Man killed his brother, pumped heroin into local orphanages, and flooded the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor. Black Dynamite was the one hero willing to fight The Man all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.
Even though I wasn’t around in the seventies, some of this dated dialogue rings true. Black Dynamite reminds me of a few men in my family, but about 30 year’s younger. The trailer for this movie is hilarious and features several comedians and character actors in supporting roles. There was already good buzz surrounding the film thanks to its successful run on the festival circuit, and now this trailer solidifies it. This movie is going to knock your socks off.
Black Dynamite hits theaters on October 16th.
