The latest trailer for Respect, a Liesl Tommy directed Aretha Franklin biography starring Jennifer Hudson, Marlon Wayans and Forest Whitaker has finally arrived.

Besides the music and Hudson’s acting talents, I’m most looking forward to watching Franklin coming into her power.

Also, hopefully the way her most iconic song ‘Respect’ came to to be is captured in a way that’s as moving as what Rocketman (2019) did for my favourite Elton John single,’Your Song’

Lodric D. Collins, Tituss Burgess, Victoria Paige Watkins, Joshua Mikel, Marc Maron, Jamaal Burcher and Saycon Sengbloh also star.

Respect Release Dates: August 13th, 2021 (US & UK)…

I know there’s going to be heartbreak but I can’t wait to see the story behind how Franklin’s iconic hit Respect came to be.

Who else could play Franklin, really, besides Hudson? Not sure that I can think of anyone better.

I myself don’t actually listen to much gospel music but I am interested because of Franklin’s legacy. I also want to know how the footage will be edited. Will we be watching the concert from start to finish or will the music be interspersed with Franklin’s story? I definitely have a personal preference.

Amazing Grace Release Dates: April 5th, 2019 (US); May 10th, 2019 (UK)…
