Exit Strategy is an upcoming black romantic comedy with a bunch of new faces and a cute, quirky story line. From the film’s plot synopsis:

James (JAMEEL SALEEM) gets evicted from his apartment and moves in with his girlfriend of 3 months Kim (KIMELIA WEATHERS) and quickly discovers she’s everything he never wanted in a woman. He enlists best friends Carville (QUINCY “QDEEZY” HARRIS) and Leona (NOELLE BALFOUR), plus strangers like BIG BOY and KEVIN HART to find a relationship exit strategy; but for Kim, breaking up just isn’t an option.

Check out the trailer:

Exit Strategy hits theaters in February. Will you be seeing this one?

    Probably gonna skip this one…as most Black films- be they indie or big big budget- have a tendency to be poorly directed with even worse actors attached to the projects.

      your the bad apple

      Please explain how I’m the bad apple? (And for the record, it’s “you’re” not “your”, if you’re going to come at me sideways…just throwing that out there…)

      What’s the point in seeing a primarily black film and knowing about the piss poor track record of Black films as far as directing and acting? I’m not going to see a Black film just because the cast is primarily Black. As a film buff whose film range goes well beyond Black films, I see this as pandering instead of filmaking.

    Why do black people pick each other apart? We’re harder on each other than any other people. these two young black actors did the web series and went on to do the movie and the leading man wrote the movie. We need to have more love and support for our own people, we are the only group of people that dont. Support Blace Actors before their gone from TV and Movies.

      The #1 most supportive audience, blacks (look at the stats on viewership and support of actors/films/shows not known to the mainstream) should be allowed to critique. Film criticism and passion for films go hand in hand, ask Siskel & Ebert.

      I for one have a problem with the idea of an overbearing black woman tormenting her recently evicted boyfriend who only wants a free ride. Her being dark-skinned adds to the stereotypes. But I’ll give this film a shot because it’s indie and black and has some new faces. Just hoping my $12 doesn’t go to a hipster Amos ‘n’ Andy-meets-Misery.

    I’m not a big fan of the formulaic rom-com genre, but I’ll give it a whirl. Hope it transcends the genre’s limitations; hope I see some new talent.

    I think this is a romantic comedy that is not the norm for black film. Usually there are glamorous but weaved up black women who can’t seem to get a man and are fixated on that fact, and black men who are any number of things, from side kicks to wannabe players , but hardly ever nuanced.This movie (at east from the trailer) presents a black couple in the same way we get to see white couple’s in romantic comedies- as quirky, fun, or at the very least, interesting,INDIVIDUALS. The actors are not acting out stereotypically “black” roles that Hollywood seems hell bent on feeding the world. Sure It seems like his girlfriend might fall into the sapphire caricature as she is domineering, but she is in no way masculine or ugly. She is like other “control freak” characters that we often see with white female characters.

    i see what’s going on in Exit as colorless – just a male-female relationship. good to see some new non-Tired Perry actors slipping through — yeah boy! indie-look for sure — that’s the future. congratas!
