Watch Trailer For The First Black Rom-Com Of The Upcoming New Year 'Black Coffee'


Chicago-based (and proudly from Englewood, he’ll tell you) filmmaker Mark Harris has come

a long way. After making and self-distributing several locally-made feature

films such as Black Butterfly

and I Used to Love Her, Harris

has moved up a notch, and has now written, produced and directed his first Los Angeles-set feature

film, starring name actors, titled Black Coffee.


Rucker, Erica Hubbard, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Gabrielle Dennis and Christian Keyes all star in a film that tells a story of what

happens when Robert (played by Henson), after being fired from his own father’s

company, feels that he’s reached the end of his rope.

Well that is…

… until Morgan (Dennis) enters into his life. But just as things start to heat up between

them, trouble brews as Morgan’s ex-husband (Rucker) vows to get her back and

Robert’s gold-digging ex-girlfriend (Hubbard) returns with an agenda of her

own. With the help of his cousin (Keyes), Robert’s about to find out how much

good can come out of a bad situation.


Village Entertainment is set to open the film on January 10th, at AMC

Theaters in Atlanta, Baltimore,

Chicago and Washington D.C.

And needless to say, if the film does well in those cities, it’s certain to expand to others as well.

Here’s the trailer:
