Latest-Trailer-For-Get-On-Up

James Brown biopic Get On Up already has one trailer out there. While this second promo for Tate Taylor’s film borrows some of the footage, there’s enough new material here to get more of a feel for the movie. Take a look over at Apple.

The Help's director has recruited some of the cast from that film to assist in telling this story, with Viola Davis as Brown’s negligent mother, who walked out on the family when he was young, only to show up again when he becomes well known, and Octavia Spencer as his aunt, who helps care for him. Judging by this trailer, the story doesn't shy away from Brown's troublemaking side, nor paper over the difficulties he faced.

Chadwick Boseman, who got a big break playing another famous historical figure, Jackie Robinson in 42, here shoulders the responsibility of bringing Brown to life. He’s surrounded by the likes of Nelsan Ellis, Jill Scott, Tika Sumpter, Dan Aykroyd, Lennie James and Craig Robinson.

With Steven Baigelman, Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth all on script duty, Get On Up is set to arrive in the UK on August 1.
