Kobe Bryant, The Black Mamba Movie TrailersCategory: Basketball
As part of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend festivities on February 19, the day before the All-Star Game at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, Kobe Bryant will become the first athlete to have a hand and foot print ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood [NBA.com News].
He is not a Hollywood actor but that is set to change because Kobe had filmed a “movie” with Bruce Willis, Kanye West and Machete star Danny Trejo. It was directed by the renowned Robert Rodriguez.
Well, technically, the movie titled “The Black Mamba” is actually a six-minute commercial for Kobe’s new line of shoes, the Nike Zoom Kobe VI.
According to its Facebook event page, the world premier of the “movie” will take place on Saturday, February 19th at 1AM PT and will stream LIVE on facebook.com/nikebasketball.
This will be a busy weekend for Kobe after garnering the most votes from fans in an online voting to play in the All-Star Game.
In the movie, Kanye West plays a villain known as The Boss, with Willis as his henchman. And The Boss wants Bryant’s shoes.
Kobe then plays a game of basketball against Danny Trejo. Interesting enough?
Watch the trailers below to whet your appetite while waiting for the movie premier.
