Chile, while we were already planning to see Chocolate City, in anticipation of its May 22nd release in theaters, this trailer right here got us feeling some kind of way. And the way is definitely hot and excited!
After confirmation and months of leaked photos from the set, the trailer for Chocolate City with its bevy of literally chocolately male stars is looking too right! The cast includes the bodies, we mean faces, pardon us–TALENTS–of Robert Ri’chard, Michael Jai White, Tyson Beckford, Ginuwine and (representing for the ladies) Carmen Electra and our girl Vivica A. Fox.
Written and directed by Jean-Claude La Marre, La Marre wanted to create a “brothas” answer to the successful Magic Mike films that uniquely focused on men turning to stripping to make ends meet, but squarely starred White actors. (But at least Channing Tatum were in them! And Latino actor Adam Rodríguez also made a cameo).
Chocolate City could be the sleeper hit of the spring season! Look for it when it hits cinemas.
And ladies. Be advised to bring an extra ice cold water bottle or two for this one!
