DOLEMITE IS MY NAME Starring Eddie Murphy Gets a Trailer

Netflix has released the trailer for Dolemite is My Name starring Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore, a pioneer of blaxploitation in the ’70s and the star of my personal favorite blaxploitation film, Dolemite. The film is directed by Craig Brewer and also stars Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chris Rock, Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Snoop Dog, T.I., and Tituss Burgess.

Dolemite is My Name will be in select theaters and on Netflix this fall.

Academy Award nominee Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer who proved naysayers wrong when his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, Dolemite, became a 1970s Blaxploitation phenomenon.
