The Help director Tate Taylor has teamed up with 42‘s Chadwick Boseman for Get On Up, a film that tells the life story of Mr. James Brown, the Godfather of Soul. In the film’s trailer, we see bits and pieces of every part of Brown’s life, including a stint in prison, his start in the music business, a dangerous visit to Vietnam, and, of course, megastardom.

Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott, and Dan Aykroyd also star.
