Trailer: ‘Get On Up’
It looks like Chadwick Boseman is delivering a funky performance as the Godfather of Soul! A new trailer for James Brown’s biopic Get On Up has just been released. Chadwick has tackled the role of James with just as much enthusiasm and authenticity as he did for his turn as Jackie Robinson in 42!
Get On Up was in great hands from the start as The Help director Tate Taylor signed on to guide production. Keeping that in mind, it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that this biopic reunites Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, who have signed on to play his mother and aunt respectively. Jill Scott, Tika Sumpter and Nelsan Ellis also star in the film.
Watch the trailer below for your first peek at Get On Up, due out August 1!
