Trailer: Get On Up – the James Brown movie

Been looking forward to seeing this for some time, but so far we just have the trailer for the autobiographical James Brown movie Get On Up.

It looks like it might be a winner too, albeit with a heavy Hollywood gloss. The movie, produced by Universal (and co-produced by Mick Jagger apparently) stars Chadwick Boseman as James Brown, with a plot focusing on Brown’s rise to the top, taking in his less than affluent childhood and the events and people that created the iconic soul / funk legend of the 1960s and ’70s (and beyond that too – he was still doing it live for some years after, although I can’t imagine the film covering too much of that!)

Check out the trailer to get an early glimpse of a film that’s unlikely to hit the cinemas until around August 2014. More on the IMDB page here.
