“If you ain’t never been down, how you going to GET ON UP?”

The story of James Brown is coming to theaters this August and the second trailer for the film has been released this week. As you know, we have been following this project since its inception and are totally excited about it.

As previously reported, Get On Up  is based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul. The film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.

Chadwick Boseman leads an all-star cast including Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott and Dan Aykroyd.

Check out the new trailer below:
