A few weeks ago I have thought about Eddie Murphy and where is that man at all? It is obvious that he was extremely popular a few decades ago, but some other actors were also… and not just then, but all time along… There were a lot of reasons for Eddie’s disappearance and one of the main ones was that almost every his role was the same and the major public wanted something new. Well, you have the official trailer for his newest movie Dolemite Is My Name and you can judge if that was changed or not.
Based on a true story the movie is about real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore. When Hollywood rejects his multi-talented personality, Rudy decides to take his own future in his hands and makes the movie Dolemite in 1975 which skyrockets his kung-fu fighting alter ego character…
