Black Dynamite Official Movie Trailer + Music
Equal parts Black Belt Jones, Shaft, Superfly and Black Caesar, Black Dynamite looks like it’s going to be kinda entertaining. The flick stars Michael Jai White (last seen catching an L thanks to The Joker in The Dark Knight) as well as funny men like Arsenio Hall and Tommy Lee Davidson. Black Dynamite hits theaters October 16.
