Black Dynamite Gets October Release. Go See It
Like (500) Days of Summer, Black Dynamite was the toast of Sundance 2009 and has spent most of this year touring the festival circuit and trying to find distribution partners. Apparition and Sony have partnered and are planning to give the film a limited release on October 16th, allowing for word of mouth to build up allowing the films release to get wider and wider. The film looks amazing and if it’s showing near you then I’m telling you to go and see it. Don’t know much about Black Dynamite, hit the jump to find out more.
Directed by Scott Sander, Black Dynamite is a parody of the Blaxploitation films of the 1970’s which is probably best described using it’s own synopsis:
“This is the story of 1970s African-American action legend Black Dynamite. The Man killed his brother, pumped heroin into local orphanages, and flooded the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor. Black Dynamite was the one hero willing to fight The Man all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.”
The film stars Michael Jai White who was last seen briefly in the Dark Knight, if Black Dynamite is half as big as I think it’s going to be, then White could end up being a huge star by the end of the year. I’ve included the Red Band trailer below but beware, it’s very NSFW.
