When I first heard about Black Dynamite, it was by way of the film’s hilarious red-band trailer, which appeared online and became something of a cult hit in my circle. We just couldn’t stop watching the trailer and cackling out loud at a film that appeared to skewer the 70s blaxploitation genre at every opportunity. However, the red-band trailer was a little too racy for Screen Rant tastes and much to my disappointment, I was left with no choice but to post an inferior green-band version.

Well, yesterday the trade sites like Entertainment Weekly finally hopped on this stick of Black Dynamite, posting the film’s official theatrical trailer online. I could instantly tell who has been behind this film since its premiere at Sundance, and those who are coming late to the party; those in the know clearly recognized that the latest theatrical trailer is actually that same first red-band trailer, toned down to a nice, green, “approved for all audiences” version.

Fortunately, the “new” trailer is just as funny (if not more so) than the red-band trailer was. See for yourself:


Again, take a look at the red-band trailer: pretty much identical right? Just with less nudity and cursing.

After that fabulous synopsis provided by the pimp narrator in the trailer, what more can I add? Visit our review of Black Dynamite if you want to know why the flick is worth your time. Also, if you didn’t catch our post promoting the movie’s hilarious viral campaign for FSITO (Fight Smack In The Orphanages), it’s a pretty good end-of-week chuckle (you GOTTA see the PSA video about smack-addicted orphans).

Black Dynamite stars (and was co-written by) Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight) and was directed by Scott Sanders (Thick as Thieves). It will be in theaters on October 16, 2009.

  1. Can’t wait. This looks freakin’ great!

  2. hahaha this is just brilliant. can’t wait to see it.

  3. This is going to be a great Cult Classic

  4. Loved the red band trailer. He was great when he played SPAWN, now it looks like he just needs a comeback movie. I don’t think it will be this one, but it will be a cult hit, and it will bring back some of those older fads. Hopefully one of those fads being the bed full of b***hes. LOL, can’t wait….
