The movie doesn’t lack for big stars, either. Viola Davis, Jill Scott and Octavia Spencer play James’s mother, one of his wives and his Aunt Honey, respectively. True Blood’s Nelsen Ellis (Lafayette) plays Brown’s manager Bobby Byrd, Craig Robinson (Peeples) plays the legendary Maceo Parker and Ralph Tresvant makes a cameo as Sam Cooke. Spike Lee was originally tapped to direct, but the movie ultimately went to Tate Taylor of The Help fame.

Get On Up is set to be released in August. What do you think of the trailer?
