It's been quite the year for Murphy, what with the announcement of a Coming to America sequel, a couple of ($$$) rumoured standup specials with Netflix, and his appearance on Jerry Seinfield's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
In the hilarious first trailer for the dramedy, Eddie Murphy brings the "hood hero" to life who was legendarily known for being skilled in the martial arts as well as a hit with the ladies in the sack. Not despite his lack of Kung-Fu skills.
"I've got an all-girl army who knows what to do". Borrowing from the road mythology of 1970s Los Angeles, Moore assumes the persona of Dolemite, a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene fables. He reprised the role of Dolemite in several other movies, including Insane Clown Posse's Big Money Hustlas. This just looks like a seriously good time at the movies, watching another amusing movie about making movies.More news: Watch Tenacious D And Jack White Meet Up For ‘Jack Gray’ Collaboration
Dolemite Is My Name hews close to reality, even returning to numerous original Dolemite filming locations.
Dolemite Is My Name will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and then it will have a limited theatrical release in the fall before streaming on Netflix.More news: Ex-NBAer Telfair sentenced to 3.5 years in prison
