This is a new trailer for the upcoming James Brown biopic starring Chadwick Boseman. I uploaded a trailer for the new Hendrix biopic ‘All by my side’ last weekend.
I said that I really did not think it could do well for one reason, there is no Hendrix music in the movie. In addition, now I think about it, he had a relatively short life. James Brown, on the other hand, lived through some of the most turbulent times in America’s history and lived (until 2006) to tell the tale.
But perhaps the big plus is that the movie has loads of James Brown classics. And the story of his relentless drive from poverty to the pinnacle of the music business has to be an interesting one.
Another interesting point I noticed at the end of the trailer is the credit for music producer going to Mick Jagger. All in all this seems to have all the right ingredients for a great music movie.
