The Black Dynamite Trailer Is Cooler Than You (VIDEO)

To balance the television landscape in the wake of the polished lighter shades and privilege of HBO's Girls, Adult Swim will be releasing the animated Black Dynamite in mid-July. Based on the 2009 blaxploitation film of the same name, it's got enough funk and soul to erase Newt Gingrich from existence.

And now it has a trailer!

Badassssss. Michael Jai White, Byron Minns, Tommy Davidson, and Kym Whitley are all providing voices for the series.


Black Dynamite debuts July 15 on Adult Swim.

It looks like it could be decent in a shallow and dumb sort of way, but it's not going to win any awards. I probably won't check it out either way though.

likely won't be watching this as i haven't been keeping up with adult swim but the movie was surprisingly perfect. i say surprisingly because prior i was only familiar with jai white from spawn which was quite a different character.

I like how strong colors there are in the animation. It looks absolutely beautiful. Other than that, it's pretty much just like The Boondocks but possibly more absurd.



The movie was hilarious, and this will hopefully maintain that.

the animation looks so much like the boondocks (which is of course a good thing)

NOBODY'S got enough funk and soul to erase Newt Gingrich from existence - and that's a fact, Jack!

This in no way makes up for no new episodes of The Boondocks. But it sure looks like alot of fun just the same!

Haha! I LOVED the movie. I remember, after first watching it, quoting the shit out of it. "How many times have I told you not to call here and interrupt my Kung Fu?!"



The bed scene in this trailer reminds me of the one in the movie:



Girl 1: Black Dynamite, that was the best loving I ever had.

Girl 2: Me too.

Girl 3: That goes triple for me.

Black Dynamite: Shh, mama. You gon' wake up the rest of the bitches.

-- Camera pans out to see two more women sleeping in the bed --

Hmm, not sure about this one. I watched Afro Samurai on Spike originally despite it being fairly politically insensitive, but it looked better and it was saying more than one thing, and this doesn't seem to be. Still, that "Damnit, I already told the second bitch 'no'!" moment gave me hope that this could end up being clever. The fact that it's airing the last night of Comic-Con makes it extremely difficult to watch though, as I don't know if I'll be home and if the DVR programming schedule will propagate far enough ahead of time to program it (or that I'll even remember in 3 weeks). The art looked fair, but honestly it's not my style, so all I can see is how it's less than other pieces in the genre. Michael Jai White has been a tough sell for me ever since he was Spawn though, but I suspect that was more a script and directing problem, I just haven't seen him do anything really since - even his turn in The Dark Knight wasn't standout. My point was... um, not sure about this show, but I'll give it a shot.

"Dammit, I already told the second bitch no!"



Yeah, it's hard to compete with that level of coolness.

That was the single thing in that trailer that got me to smile.

I can't wait. I was still in Europe when the movie came out there and one of my flat mates told me about it. We went to the cinema watched it and it was genius. Pure genius. And has turned out to be one of my favorite movies of all time. And I can't wait for the sequel. And I think it was last year when I got my iPad and was putting the adult swim app on it I saw a thing in it for Black Dynamite and it had been just announced it was going to be a show. I was excited and then there was an 11 minute pilot for it. And it was great, this is going to be a fantastic show. And couple this with Adult Swim having a new The Boondocks season 4. It is going to be great.
