Jennifer Hudson played a convincing 60s soul singer in “Dreamgirls,” but does the “American Idol” have the vigor and talent it would take any thespian, to pull off a role like Winne Mandela? After a series of delays, we will finally know the answer on Septemeber 6th, when the biopic chronicling Winnie Mandela’s journey to keep her husband’s message alive while he is imprisoned.

One thought on “PRESS PLAY: Jennifer Hudson Shines As Winnie Mandela In Biopic [TRAILER]

  1. From what I saw on the trailer Jennifer did a great job. Not much information here though. Is this movie going to be in theaters, or on TV? Also it’s somewhat confusing in that Idris Elba is also starring in a Mandela movie. It’s surprising that two Mandela movies are coming out at about the same time. I hope both of the movies come to a theater near me; because sometimes these types of movies have limited theater release. The other question is who’s playing Winnie in the biopic starring Idris?
