Shot in a day, the Outlaw Johnny Black trailer definitely captures the over-the-top tone of the original Black Dynamite, introducing a hero who fights hard and loves harder. It’s charmingly low-budget, but it totally works as a parody of classic Western blaxploitation films — which, yes, is a genre that exists.
Black Dynamite was a 2009 cult hit directed by Scott Sanders and starred Michael Jai White as the titular kung-fu fighting action star who decides to clean up the community. It was a hilarious send-up of ’70s blaxploitation movies and remains a modern comedy classic. Now, nearly 10 years later, White is seeking money to produce a fan-funded film that is independently produced and distributed completely his production company, Jaigantic Studios.
