Eddie Murphy's comeback is in full swing with the official trailer release for his new forthcoming film, Dolemite Is My Name.

In the star-studded 1970s Blaxploitation-themed movie, Murphy stars as real-life comedian and "Godfather of Rap" Rudy Ray Moore, whose career blew up due to his larger-than-life character, Dolemite. The film follows Moore's mission to make Dolemite, a movie that's sure to be the first of its kind.

The film is set to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and will see a limited theatrical release in the fall. 

In addition to Murphy, the movie stars the likes of Tituss Burgess, Craig Robinson, Keegan-Michael Key, Snoop Dogg, Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps and more.
