Dolemite Is My Name Trailer

Eddie Murphy hasn’t had much luck on the big screen for the past couple decades. With the exception of Shrek and Dreamgirls, he’s produced and starred in some truly dreadful movies. But it looks like we’re on the verge of a return to form for the once-thriving comedian, because along with the forthcoming comedy sequel Coming 2 America, we’ll see Eddie Murphy back as a real-life character who was truly larger than life.

Dolemite Is My Name stars Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore, a real-life comedian known as the “Godfather of Rap” who reinvigorated his struggling career by turning himself into a wild 1970s blaxploitation character called Dolemite. And along with Murphy, the film features an incredible ensemble cast that includes Tituss Burgess, Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Keegan-Michael Key, Snoop Dogg, and even Wesley Snipes, looking like he’s having the most fun he’s had in a long time. Watch the Dolemite Is My Name trailer below to see for yourself. Read More »

Playing with Fire Trailer

John Cena has been on the rise as an actor ever since he showed a completely different side to his talents with a supporting role in Amy Schumer’s romantic comedy Trainwreck. Since then, he led the animated film Ferdinand, starred in the surprisingly great Blockers, tracked down Transformers in Bumblebee, and he’s joining the squad in Fast and Furious 9. But not all of his choices are going to be winners, as evidenced by the trailer for his next movie.

Playing with Fire is a new family comedy that finds John Cena playing a firefighter who takes a trio of kids under his wing after rescuing them from a fire. For some reason, he’s legally bound to take care of these kids until their parents get back from…somewhere. It doesn’t matter, because this looks absolutely atrocious. Read More »
