Dynamite gets release

08.25.2009

It’s always interesting to see which films will wander out of Sundance and end up being wide released. But when your film is as buzzed about as BLACK DYNAMITE, it seems only logical that someone would take it on the magic carpet ride to the big screen eventually.

Sony Pictures and Apparition have picked up the project they describe as “a sort of Austin Powers period comedy” but instead of the swinging sixties, it tackles the blaxploitation films of the ‘70s. Here’s the official line:

"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."

If that doesn’t sound awesome enough to you, I’ve posted the fantastic trailer below. To me the best part about the film is how authentically it looks like it actually came out of the ‘70s, and I’m wondering in what Hollywood dumpster (or museum) they found the equipment used to film this. In any case, it looks amazing, and now we’ll get to see it October 16th and watch it slowly expand nationwide.

Extra Tidbit: Even the trailer is better than all three AUSTIN POWERS movies. Though no Elizabeth Hurley or Heather Graham.

Cult hit in the making baby!

This looks great in so many ways, I'll buy this and stick it right next to "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka," when the wayans were funny, "Strange Brew" & "Napoleon Dynamite." I just hope that people get a chance to see this in theatres. But even if not, big audience for DVD is coming I'm sure.

YES!!

I've been waiting for Sony to finally commit to a date to the release of this movie. It kept bouncing around from Sept. to Dec. now finally Oct. 16th.

What I find amazing is that Jai White is not only the actor in this, but he's also the writer! Great stuff, I didn't know he had the comedy chops to pull off something like this. I'm there.

The funniest film I've seen in a long time

I saw this at the Sundance premiere, and it was the funniest film I've seen in a long time. (I posted an early review, with a brief interview of the director, on Amazon, here: [link])
