Several films featuring Bitcoin are coming out before the summer. The main character in "Superfly", a remake of the 1972 crime drama "Super Fly", is now "swapping cash for crypto." Director X's debut movie is scheduled for release on July 15. And in Russia, two college students are chasing a hard disk storing a fortune in Bitcoin, after they sold the wrong PC to a pawn shop. The film should be ready by the end of May.
Superfly – Swapping Cash for Crypto, Redefining the Hustle
Have you heard of the "Exploitation" genre, exploitation film or fiction? It was created by authors tempted to, well, exploit themes that some might consider taboo. Others won't, but in any case, exploitation works are often pushing against the limits of "the appropriate" in their respective times.
Sex, drugs, and violence are all part of the "exploitation" intended to attract attention. It's basically the pulp fiction of the second half of the 20th century. Blaxploitation is a subgenre, which for the first time placed African-American characters and communities in the spotlight. The 1972 crime drama "Super Fly" is a good example which has been recently remade.
The 2018 version exploits the usual taboos, but also a modern hot topic – digital cash and crime. "Superfly" is the debut movie of Director X, or Julien Christian Lutz, best known for the music videos he made for Drake, Jay-Z, and Rihanna. Sony Pictures just released a full-length trailer of his remake of the Blaxploitation classic.
