Apparition to release Sony Pictures’ Black Dynamite in the US


MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group’s Black Dynamite will be released by Apparition in the US on 16 October.

The announcement was made jointly today by SPWAG President Steve Bersch and Apparition’s Bob Berney.

Directed and co-written by Scott Sanders, the film stars Michael Jai White as Black Dynamite, a gun-toting, nunchuck-wielding, ladies man willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House. Rounding out the supporting cast are Tommy Davidson, Byron Minns, Arsenio Hall and Salli Richardson – Whitfield.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group president Steve Bersch said, "We knew we had a clever and intelligent laugh-out-loud film when we bought BLACK DYNAMITE in Sundance. Since then, the film has enjoyed over-the-top receptions on the film festival circuit, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the film to the public."

Apparition’s Bob Berney added, "Scott Sanders has made a classic: a movie that audiences quote lines from walking out of the theatre. Michael Jai White gives a kick-ass, hilarious performance that shows true knowledge and love of the genre. This one is really fun to be a part of; I discover new laughs every time I see the film."
