Red-Band Trailer For The Eminem-Produced Rap Battle Film BODIED
“Words are weapons in the world’s most brutal lyrical sport.”
YouTube has released a red-band trailer for for their Eminem-produced rap battle film called Bodied and it’s pretty damn entertaining. I also included a green-band trailer as well, but the red-band is the better one.
The film was directed by Joseph Khan (Torque) and it’s described as a “go-for-the-jugular, hilarious look inside the competitive world of rap battles.” Here’s the synopsis that was released:
Berkeley grad student Adam Merkin (Calum Worthy; “American Vandal,” “Austin & Ally”) gets sucked into the game after meeting icon Behn Grym (Jackie Strong; BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood”) and accidentally competing in—and winning—his first battle. Rising through the ranks of the battle scene with his provocative insults, Adam alienates his academic buddies, uptight girlfriend, and literary professor father (Anthony Michael Hall).
I think the movie looks great! I’ve always enjoyed the art of freestyle rap and the rap battle scene is so brutal, yet fun. Bodied will be released in theaters on November 2nd and on YouTube Premium November 28th.
