Who’s the black private dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks? You’re damn right, it’s Shaft, and now three generations are hitting our screens in one pop.
Simply entitled Shaft, the original John Shaft in Richard Roundtree joins onscreen son Samuel L Jackson and his onscreen son Jessie T Usher for a multi-generational romp through all things, erm, Shaft-y.
JJ, aka John Shaft Jr, is a cyber security expert with a university degree, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death, he needs an education that only his dad can provide – a lesson in street smarts. John Shaft II (Jackson) helps his kid navigate the seedy ins and outs of Harlem’s underbelly, with a bit of grandfatherly advice along the way.
The video below features not only the new trailer, but also a wild triple Shaft assault upon Jimmy Kimmel’s intro monologue. OK, hit it!
