Eddie Murphy blir kung fu-pimp i nya Dolemite is My Name-trailern

"Bitch, are you fo' real?!"

Det blir ordentligt stjärnpackat i den nya trailern för Dolemite is My Name, en verklighetsbaserad Netflix-komedi om komikern Rudy Ray Moore (Eddie Murphy) som förvandlas till ett gigantiskt blaxploitation-fenomen på vita duken kallad Dolemite på 70-talet. Förutom Murphy ser vi också Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chris Rock, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Mike Epps, T.I., och Chelsea Gilson. Filmen - som regisseras av Hustle & Flow-gubben Craig Brewer - anländer till Netflix under hösten. Ser detta som en film för dig?

Synopsis:
Stung by a string of showbiz failures, floundering comedian Rudy Ray Moore (Eddie Murphy) has an epiphany that turns him into a word-of-mouth sensation: step onstage as someone else. Borrowing from the street mythology of 1970s Los Angeles, Moore assumes the persona of Dolemite, a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene fables. However, his ambitions exceed selling bootleg records deemed too racy for mainstream radio stations to play. Moore convinces a social justice-minded dramatist (Keegan-Michael Key) to write his alter ego a film, incorporating kung fu, car chases, and Lady Reed (Da'Vine Joy Randolph), an ex-backup singer who becomes his unexpected comedic foil. Despite clashing with his pretentious director, D'Urville Martin (Wesley Snipes), and countless production hurdles at their studio in the dilapidated Dunbar Hotel, Moore's Dolemite becomes a runaway box office smash and a defining movie of the Blaxploitation era.
