“Black strip clubs and white strip clubs are totally different,” Tyson Beckford previously stated. On May 22, moviegoers will see exactly how different. Based on the first trailer though, Chocolate City looks awfully similar to that other stripper movie. Both feature a young man hard up for money being introduced to the lucrative world of exotic dancing. Although this one, features Ginuwine in the film, and not just his hit song “Pony.”
Welcome to Chocolate City, where the music is hot, the mood is magical, and the exotic male dancers are simply delicious. Women go wild as these toned, talented men make fantasies come true… and the arrival of a young, new exotic dancer (Robert Ri’chard) has the spot sizzling like never before. At home, he is Michael, an inner city college student struggling to help his mother (Vivica A. Fox) make ends meet. However, when his part-time job doesn’t pay the bills, Michael begins to find success at a nightclub dancing as “Sexy Chocolate.” As the money starts rolling in, Michael must deal with the unexpected pressure of being the female clubgoers’ favorite flavor while hiding his new “job” from his mother and girlfriend.
Along with Beckford, the Magic Mike-like film stars Michael Jai White, Vivica A. Fox, Carmen Electra and Robert Ri’chard. Chocolate City grinds into limited theaters on May 22, just weeks before the highly-anticipated round two of Channing Tatum and company. Check out the first trailer below.
