The trailer for Dolemite Is My Name, starring comedy legend and Oscar nominated actor Eddie Murphy, is finally here. Netflix dropped the highly anticipated trailer on Monday and it’s everything we’ve been waiting for.
In the film, Murphy stars as real-life comedian and “Godfather of Rap” Rudy Ray Moore, who went from floundering comic to word-of-mouth sensation thanks to his outlandish 1970s blaxploitation character Dolemite.
Comics and rappers have praised Moore as a pioneering influence over the past few decades, and Dolemite Is My Name is a hilarious celebration of a singular talent who made his own legend.
Set to make it’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and have a limited theatrical release in the fall, the film features an all-star supporting cast including Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Snoop Dogg, Ron Cephas Jones, Barry Shabaka Henley, Tip ‘TI’ Harris, Luenell, and Tasha Smith.
The film was directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Empire) and written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, The People vs. O.J. Simpson) — plus costumes designed by Academy Award winner Ruth E. Carter (Black Panther).
