GET ON UP poster

 

Here’s a trailer for GET ON UP - a pornishly titled James Brown biopic (the title itself partially derives from a lyric in one of Brown’s songs - hearable below - as well as a line in this trailer).  

This one’s from director Tate Taylor (2011’s THE HELP).  Mick Jagger was a producer on the picture, which also features…Dan Aykroyd.   The trailer comes to us via Yahoo Movies.  I have no clue whether or not this film will be any good, although I suspect it will be interesting, but I rather like the poster’s “The funk don’t quit.”tagline. 

Look for GET ON UP theatrically in early August.
