See James Brown Godfather Soul in the 'Get on Up' Trailer
Though it arrives just half a year since the film got the greenlight, this first trailer for Get on Up quickly proves itself the hardest working trailer in James Brown movies. Running nearly three minutes, it's got a car chase, sex, jail, musical numbers, family drama, a shotgun, and Dan Aykroyd. Returning to the biopic scene, 42's Chadwick Boseman stars, while director Tate Taylor brings back his The Help cast members Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer for supporting roles. Still no footage of Brown's fabled sex machine. Probably have to wait for the red-band trailer.
