Eddie Murphy dropped the first trailer for his much-anticipated comedy film Dolemite Is My Name. Murphy heads a star-studded cast of bold name Black comedians and rappers from the past and present.

The top heavy cast includes Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Mike Epps, Snoop Dogg, Tasha Smith, Luenell, and a barely recognizable Tip "TI" Harris.

Dolemite Is My Name follows the life of X-rated comedian Rudy Ray Moore, whose bootleg adult comedy albums helped fund his first feature length blaxploitation film Dolemite.

Snoop Dogg plays another blaxploitation film legend, the late actor D'Urville Martin.

Dolemite Is My Name will stream on Netflix before hitting theaters this fall.

  • xxxgracious

    Bout time ??


    I'm looking forward to this!

  • Lovechild

    Predicting this is his come back and it’s going to be a big hit. We met Mr. Rudy Ray Moore he was a gentleman. The younger generation needs to know about him because I think he was a genius so creative.

  • Nita Pie

    I love Eddie and Charlie(RIP)

  • Lovechild

    Wonder if he’s going to do signifiying monkey?

  • KcoolMuziq

    I was sworn to secrecy about this movie with having to sign an NDA. I'm glad it's FINALLY seeing the light of day after viewing a unedited version.

    Eddie(whom I worked with in a few projects) is my ALL TIME favorite comedian. He deserves an Oscar which he should have gotten for his magnificent role in 'Dreamgirls'. Here is his chance again, he put his heart & soul in this movie. Along with Wesley Snipes,T.I.,Chris Rock,Tituss Burgess,Mike Epps,Luenell, Keegan-Michael Key & Craig Robinson.

  • Li-Wright

    Is it me? Or is every black male comedian and rapper in this movie? I was watching the trailer and saw more cameos and celebs, it was disrupting my attention id'ing the names.

  • Li-Wright

    I don't think Netflix is releasing it to theater. I think this is straight to Netflix; right? that disqualifies him for an Oscar. Why is every black comedian (exc. Chappell) in this movie?

  • Li-Wright

    WHAT? I'm in Chicago and there's nothing on the news.

  • Li-Wright

    I only go to the free screenings. I can't afford theater costs. But it doesn't make sense that Netflix would stream first and then go to theaters; that's not right?

  • KcoolMuziq

    "I think this is straight to Netflix; right? "

    I saw it in a private movie theater. Some movies have a dual release on both Netflix & a Cinema theater to qualify for an Oscar nomination.

    U need a star studded cast to support Eddie's brilliant performance.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Wanna see...good to see Eddie working! I hope it’s Oscar nominated and he wins!

  • Ms. Cree

    I love Eddie Murphy! Youngins' do your research. His year will be 2020. Stand ups and Movies. Mark my words.

  • Applebootay

    I WUB Eddie too!

  • Applebootay

    I heard both select Theaters and Netflix.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Eddie a LEGEND

  • Logan Roberts

    I always liked Eddie. Charlie Murphy would've been a nice addition to the cast too.

  • NicolaLoves

    It's premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, but they'll need to have a few more screenings before releasing it on Netflix it they're hoping for any sort of Oscar nominations.

  • Nik

    Murphy, Snipes, Epps, and Key?? Hell yes!

  • Renee26

    Looks like it's gonna be hilarious

  • Nik

    OMG! Didn't hear this. Thank you.

  • Nik

    I loooooove Titus! Cannot wait!

  • Li-Wright

    You know, Eddie is not liked by Hollywood. He has a past history of not being liked, (you can google it) so I doubt he will be nominated. He was hilarious in Bowfinger, but wasn't nom'd. It's the same for Sylvester Stallone. He was deserving of an award in Creed, but Hollywood doesn't like him. You gotta be a NICE guy in Hollywood to win.

  • Li-Wright

    Eddie doesn't have a good rep in Hollywood, the same as Stallone. There are some actors who might be nom'd, but will never win the big one.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Damn Eddie doesn’t age....he still looks goodT

  • Bushbabe

    Eddie still got it.

  • Bushbabe

    God rest his soul, he would have been too.

  • Seldomseen

    Whitney was always an entire mood

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly !!!!

  • Nik

    It's his fault every time I see the name "Aaron" I read it as, "Ay-ay-ron"???

  • Nik

    Love you eddy but all I hear and see is the nutty professor character

  • Roderick2011

    Seeing her makes me sad.

    Whitney was a train wreck waiting to happen, but no one could do anything to help her.

    He was robbed of an Oscar, this role hopefully will correct that! Go Eddie! Cant wait.

  • Karen Brady

    I never knew who Dolemite was (only heard the name here and there over the years). I finally Googled it. Oh.

  • BlackNicheRims

    "Way down in the jungle deep....
