We admit we weren’t all that excited about a James Brown movie…at first. But a glimpse at the almost 3 minute trailer for Get On Up has surely changed our mind. We thought we knew a little something about the Godfather of Soul’s life, but we didn’t know it was going to come off like a combination of The Five Heartbeats mixed with The Temptations and a little Dreamgirls thrown in, all to a James Brown soundtrack. It’s hard to go wrong with that.
Chadwick Boseman, an unknown a year ago, has apparently found his niche as The Biopic Brother, because this is his second movie in a row playing a real-life figure.Not that you can go wrong with Jackie Robinson and James Brown in your first two big movies.
