After years away from the spotlight, one of the all-time greats, Eddie Murphy, is returning to the big screen to star in a blockbuster comedy Dolemite Is My Name.
Fans have waited a very long time for Eddie Murphy to come back to major motion pictures, but this year seems to be the big return for the beloved actor.
First he appeared on the latest season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he’s signed on to return as Prince Akeem in the Coming to America sequel, and now a new trailer has dropped for his new film Dolemite Is My Name.
The Netflix film sees Eddie portray 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.”
And it looks epic!
Take a look:
The film also stars Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key Mike Epps, Tituss Burgess, Craig Robinson, Da’vine Joy Randolph and Snoop Dogg!
Dolemite Is My Name is coming soon Netflix.
