Looking for something to do this weekend? Why not get up off of that couch and go see “Get On Up: The James Brown Story”?
The film, directed by Tate Taylor (“The Help”) and produced by Mick Jagger, explores the life and complexities of legendary entertainer James Brown. Chadwick Boseman shines moon bright in a sea of stars (Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, & Dan Aykroyd), as he shimmies and slides his way across the stage as the “Godfather of Soul”.
Filmed right here in our great state of Mississippi and in theaters tomorrow, “Get On Up” promises to expose a whole new generation to Brown, who has had major influence on a wealth of popular music, especially hip hop (Brown was one of the most sampled artist in the early hip hop community).
Check out the trailer below and we hope to see you at the movies August 1st!
