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)…

Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, Mary J. Blige and Jason Mitchell are the stars of director, Dee Rees’s latest, Mudbound. Hedlund and Mitchell play two men who are back home from World War II to work on a farm in rural Mississippi. The men struggle to deal with racism and adjusting to life after war…

My guess would be that PTSD is more or less the same for war veterans now – as it was back then. I can’t wait to find out in this movie. The beautiful friendship and how Rees handles the challenges both men face are additional reasons I’ll be watching. Also,¬†Garrett Hedlund starring in a promising movie…¬†I’ve looked forward to this day. I really have. I’ve also been hearing the name ‘Dee Rees’ for a few weeks now. It’s time I found out why.

Lastly, Carey Mulligan is back! Yeah! – for she’s one of my favourites.

Mudbound Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US)…
