Black dramatic movies aren’t overflowing on Hulu right now but we wanted to compile a list of some cool dramas to watch if you want to Hulu and chill. We’re including movies on Hulu which have black leads but aren’t necessarily an all black cast. We decided to call them black movies because we want to believe. But the reality is, there are probably fewer than 9 black dramatic movies which feature a majority black cast on Hulu right now. 

More Black Dramatic Movies Are Needed

We scrolled through the movie poster images and typed in what is currently available on Hulu. Here’s the list…

  1. Fences featuring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis 

  2. Creed featuring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone

  3. Our Kind of Traitor featuring Naomi Harris

  4. Traitor featuring Don Cheadle

  5. Hoodlum featuring Lawrence Fishburne

The movies below have diverse ensemble casts so we’ve included them on the list. It’s funny because we bet Honey and Honey 2 were heavily inspired by the newest Fame movie. And of course, this Fame movie was a remake of the original Fame movie. Nothing is new in this business. Here are the three honorable mentions:

Honey 2 featuring Kat Graham

Honey featuring Mekhi Phifer

Fame featuring Naturi Naughton, Debbie Allen

We hope in the near future Hulu will increase its black dramatic feature film catalog. There have to be African Americans wanting some drama who watch Hulu. I know we are over at Black TV Film crew. If you’re using Hulu and would like an increase in their black dramatic movies, leave a comment below. There will be no change if they don’t know we’re interested. If you wanna know the Black Comedies we’ve seen on Netflix, we got you.
