We really never thought we’d be bringing you news on a film called Chocolate City, but such is the power and diversity of the world of cinema. This Blaxploitation version of Magic Mike looks set to provide a light-hearted look at the lives of some black male strippers in the US.
Jean-Claude La Marre directs this tale which sees a struggling young college student stumble into the world of male stripping. Robert Ri’chard, Michael Jai White, Vivica A. Fox and the ever-shy Tyson Beckford star.
Chocolate City also stars acclaimed thespian Carmen Electra (see Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding), which is surely a reason to see it – alongside all the chiselled torsos and abundance of models within the cast.
It slaps its way into US cinemas on May 22nd. No UK release date as of yet – but you knew that already. Watch the trailer below.
