2015 Oscar Predictions: First Look at Best Picture

19 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's too early to know much of anything about the race for Best Picture at the 2015 Oscars, but that being said, two of the films in my list of early predicted nominees have already been seen, one is even in theaters. So, is it really all that earlyc Also, isn't it about time we start seeing more Oscar contenders at the beginning of the year rather than the back-loaded log jam at the end of the year that seems to continually prove opening your film in December isn't exactly the best way to find Oscar gloryc However, for those of you that are likely to rush to the comments saying, "This is ridiculous! Wait until later in the year." All I can say is you ought to reevaluate your definition of the word "ridiculous" for more important matters, this is about fun and about getting excited for what are likely »

Chadwick Boseman Shines As James Brown In Funky First Get On Up Trailer

15 March 2014 12:04 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s a man.s man.s man.s world, as per the lyrics and title of James Brown.s classic 1966 single. But it.s what the woman does to the man that drives him. At least that.s the feeling I get from the first trailer for Tate Taylor.s next film, Get On Up, a feature version of the formative years in James Brown.s career and life. Who? (horn stabs) I said the Godfather of Soul! (horn stabs) I said the Sex Machine himself, James Brown! One would expect Tate.s follow-up to his highly acclaimed 2011 drama The Help would be at least as dramatic and heartfelt, and that.s mostly what I.m getting from this trailer, via iTunes Movie Trailers, although the massive 2:47 length is played out to look like it.s singing for the attention of award voters.

‘Get On Up’ Trailer Brings Plenty of Funk, Maybe Some Tears to James Brown’s Life Story

14 March 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Awwww yeah, things are about to get a little more funky up in here, everybody. The trailer for the long-gestating James Brown biopic, Get On Up (Can we be honest with each other, here? Maybe there could have been a better title besides reaching for a familiar song title), has landed and it’s exceedingly catchy. The story of the Godfather of Soul is apparently a comprehensive look at the legendary singer’s formative years up until the height of his success, and it’s not skimping out on any of the music that made the man so famous. The film, directed by The Help‘s Tate Taylor, stars Chadwick Boseman (42) as the titular soul man as he maneuvers through a rough childhood, time spent in jail and through all that fame business. Being a superstar is kind of a big part of this story, if you didn’t gather that on your own. The »

The James Brown Biopic Trailer Will Make You Want to Get On Up

14 March 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Chadwick Boseman is used to playing iconic figures; he played Jackie Robinson in last year's 42, and now he's taking on the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, in Get On Up. Director Tate Taylor (The Help) is directing the biopic, which follows the incredibly talented Brown from his childhood to his rise to fame. Some highlights: Viola Davis as the mother who abandons him, Octavia Spencer as his doting aunt, Craig Robinson as his bandmate, and True Blood's Nelsan Ellis as fellow R&B singer Bobby Byrd. The movie is out Aug. 1, so mark your calendars for some soul, because it looks pretty great. »

Funk-Fuelled First Trailer & Images For James Brown Biopic ‘Get On Up’

14 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

James Brown’s music continues to rightfully resonate through the industry today and we’ve got the first trailer for Get On Up, the film that documents his life from extreme poverty to one of the most influential musicians of modern times.

The Godfather of Soul had a turbulent up-bringing and youth, with stints in and out of prison but first found some form of solace in music. Get On Up is set to portray everything from the start to his latter years with Chadwick Boseman taking on the huge challenge of bringing the great man to life. Saying that, Boseman isn’t new to the big names after also successfully giving life to Jackie Robinson in 42.

This first trailer shows a lot of the setup and what we’ll expect, I just hope they find that good balance of real-life story and dramatising his unique life to really give it full gravitas. »

Watch: Chadwick Boseman Channels James Brown in 'Get On Up' Trailer

14 March 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the vein of Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman, actor Chadwick Boseman seems to be getting some highly-coveted roles playing renowned African-American icons. One year after his breakthrough performance as Jackie Robinson in "42," Boseman now returns to the screen to play none other than musical genius James Brown. The biopic "Get On Up" depicts James Brown's life from his early childhood, marked by its severe poverty, all the way to his attainment of celebrity as one of the most important musicians of his generation. The trailer indicates that James Brown's unforgettable music and undeniable presence in history is alive and well, infusing the power of his music with the harsh tragedies that have shaped him to become the public figure we remember today. "Get On Up" also stars Oscar-nominee Viola Davis and Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer as James' mother and aunt, respectively, and reunites them with their "The Help" director Tate Taylor. »

Yes, No, Maybe So: "Get On Up"

14 March 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

You is kind. You is smart. You is important."

I love The Help (2011). I don't care who knows it. So I'm immediately curious about Get On Up, Tate Taylor's follow up which reunites Minny & Aibileen though they both take a back seat since this time it's the story of rock legend James Brown (Chadwick Boseman). This trailer also starts with an affirmative.

You special. And your momma's a no account fool. But you ain't gonna be. One day everybody gonna know your name"

James Brown [*makes applause sound*]

Okay so that's not as universal an affirmation but... wait. oh. That makes Viola Davis the 'no account fool'? Do over! Not sure I'm okay with this. Time for a Yes No Maybe So™  »

Chadwick Boseman chases stardom in first trailer for James Brown biopic 'Get On Up'

14 March 2014 6:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles, Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon as Johnny and June Carter Cash, Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf, Cate Blanchett as (more or less) Bob Dylan -- playing an iconic musician has been a successful route to awards attention for several actors in recent years. That may be the long-term goal for Tate Taylor's glossy-looking James Brown biopic "Get On Up," but the more immediate goal suggested by the film's first trailer is launching 31-year-old leading man Chadwick Boseman to major-league stardom. I don't envy any actor the challenge of channelling James Brown's unique performance charisma: the so-called Godfather of Soul was an electric, practically possessed stage presence whose appeal busted both genre and demographic limitations, and it'll take a portrayal of considerable invention and self-assurance to avoid coming off as a pale impersonation. We know Boseman has the chops, and that he has form in »
