Hollywood is known for bringing iconic musicians to life and sharing their stories with the masses. We’ve seen it before. with Ray (Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles) , Cadillac Records (Beyonce as Etta James) and now with Get On Up.

Get On Up tells the story of James Brown. We get a glimpse into his childhood, prison stay and his thriving music career. The film stars Chadwick Boseman (42) as James Brown, Octavia Spencer (The Help) as his aunt and Jill Scott (Baggage Claim) as Brown’s wife.

Take a look at the new trailer for the summer biopic about the Godfather of Soul. The film is directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and between the music and the plot, it appears to be a film that viewers will enjoy.

Get On Up hits theaters August 1, 2014.
