Get On Up
The James Brown Story
Rated PG-13 - 139 minutes
From the Director of "The Help" - Tate Taylor
Producers: Mick Jagger & Brian Grazer
Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Dan Akroyd
Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul the film gives a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of James Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
"In 2007, Jamie Foxx won Best Actor for his subtle performance as Ray Charles. Boseman exceeds that solid standard. Incarnating James Brown in all his ornery uniqueness, he deserves a Pulitzer, a Nobel and instant election to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
"Chadwick Boseman... fills Brown's shoes with a dynamism that transcends imitation."
- Wall Street Journal
"Like its gyrating, spasmodic staccato beats, Get On Up refuses to stand still. It whirls and does splits and jumps, with leaps around in time and changes in tempo that are jarring and abrupt and that usually feel just right."
- The New York Times
"One funk-tastic musical biopic"
- New York Post
"Get on Up belongs, as it must, to Boseman, who delivers the kind of charisma, showmanship, sex appeal, and tireless energy that allows us to believe him as the Hardest Working Man in Show Business."
- The Wrap
"Boseman and Taylor deliver a piece of American cultural history every bit as important as the Jackie Robinson story, a story told with heart, humor, funk and soul."
