The first official trailer for Domino: Battle of the Bones has been released — centering on a chaotic tournament and teasing a satirical take on classic hood dramas. The film was directed by former NBA star Baron Davis in collaboration with Steven V. Vasquez Jr. and Carl Reid. Davis and Reid also crafted the script, alongside Pamela Azmi-Andrew. After production was completed, the U.S. rights were acquired by TriCoast Entertainment, who announced that Domino: Battle of the Bones would be released in select theaters on June 11, 2021.
In celebration of the announcement, the trailer for Domino: Battle of the Bones was released via TriCoast Worldwide. Featuring Snoop Dogg and returning Scream star David Arquette, the action centered on a disparate group of competitors as they passionately scheme over an upcoming domino tournament. Packed with satirical grittiness, the film could best be described as Boyz in the Hood by way of classic Christopher Guest movies. According to Davis, the game provided “the perfect recipe for human connection” while also utilizing a cast with “panache and a true understanding of comedy“. With tongue firmly in cheek, various social dynamics (and the history of dominos) are firmly touched on. Check out the trailer below:
The official synopsis reads: A fallen domino champion from Compton enlists his savant, white, step-grandson to help him win an off-the-wall and shady as hell tournament in the hopes of reclaiming his former hood glory. As well as Snoop and Arquette, Domino: Battle of the Bones stars Lou Beatty Jr., Tasie Lawrence, Megan Sousa, Anthony “Scruncho” McKinley, Godfrey, Haha Davis, and The Dark Knight‘s Tom “Tiny” Lister Jr. As well as writing and directing, Davis also starred. Original music was provided by Bart Oatmeal and Mike & Keys.
