Brown Sugar Launches First Original Short Film: BLACKSTAR WARRIOR

Brown Sugar, the popular subscription video-on-demand service from Bounce featuring the biggest collection of the baddest African-American movies of all-time, premieres its first-ever original short film today.

Watch the baddest man in the galaxy fight off evil suckas one planet at a time!

Blackstar Warrior, an original new blaxploitation-meets-Star Wars mashup starring Leonard Roberts (Drumline, Love Jones), debuts on Brown Sugar today, June 24. Set in a 1970s version of the future, the tongue-in-cheek film follows space detective Tyson Roderick (Roberts) who, in his quest to discover the truth behind his origins, stumbles into-and-must defeat a cult hellbent on taking over the galaxy. Blackstar Warrior was directed by Matt Haley and co-written by Simon Oré.

“We found a box of old VHS tapes, was kind enough to help us remaster them. if there’s sufficient interest, we may get to show more episodes. And yes, that actor does look an awful lot like Leonard Roberts from DRUMLINE and HEROES, what a coincidence! Cannot believe we’re on the IMDb homepage!” -Matt Haley (Director)
