I’d call this the ‘final’ Respect trailer, but that would be silly. There’s at least 2 more to go, probably. I’m not necessarily complaining because I do like this edit.

Starring Jennifer Hudson, Tate Donovan, Mary J. Blige, Marc Maron, Forest Whitaker and Marlon Wayans; Respect, the life story of Aretha Franklin is directed by Liesl Tommy.

I’m excited to watch the young Franklin grow up to find her voice, and see the kindness of the people who helped her along the way. I also can’t wait to expereinec the way Franklin’s most iconic song, Respect came to life. Especially after having seen how beautifully the inception of Elton John’s ‘Your Song‘ is captured in Rocketman (2019).

Bring on the music and great performances, because I’m ready for my appreciation for Franklin, Hudson and everyone else involved to grow.

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

Respect Release Dates: August 13th, 2021 (US); September 10th, 2021 (UK)…

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’

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.
