Movie Trailer: Eddie Murphy’s ‘Dolemite Is My Name’

Published: Monday 12th Aug 2019 by Sam

Eddie Murphy is back!

The funnyman is ending his hiatus by top-billing new movie ‘Dolemite Is My Name,’ which premieres on Netflix this Fall.

Highly anticipated, the Craig Brewer directed picture sees Murphy star as Rudy Ray Moore and is billed as a hilarious celebration of a singular talent who made his own legend.

Check out the first look trailer for the film, which features Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, Snoop Dogg, and more…

Official Synopsis:

Stung by a string of showbiz failures, floundering comedian Rudy Ray Moore  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.
