Universal Pictures has released a second trailer for their James Brown biopic called Get On Up. The movie was directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), and Chadwick Boseman (42) stars. From what I've seen in the trailers, the guy is perfect for the role. Brown was one awesome, crazy, cool musician, and this looks like it's going to be a great biopic.
Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. Boseman is joined in the drama by Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott and Dan Aykroyd.
The movie also stars Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott, and Dan Aykroyd. It is set to be released in theaters on August 1st.
