First Trailer for Eddie Murphy's "Dolemite is My Name" brings the funny

Netflix debuted the first official trailer for the new comedy titled Dolemite is My Name, the latest feature made by acclaimed filmmaker Craig Brewer (The Poor & Hungry, Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan, Footloose).

The trailer has that classic over the top character Eddie feel...(Think The Klumps, Coming to America, Norbit) and the trailer did make me chuckle but we aren't convinced it's going to be hilarious just yet.

Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think!

The movie also includes a star-studded supporting cast, Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chris Rock, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Mike Epps, T.I., and Chelsea Gilson

Dolemite is my name streams on netflix and will be in select theaters this fall.
