The First Trailer for Chadwick Boseman’s Final Film ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ Is Here

Netflix’s upcoming Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is bound to get a lot of attention for featuring Chadwick Boseman’s final role before his shocking death. But the movie’s got plenty to recommend it besides — an adaptation of an August Wilson play, produced by Denzel Washington, directed by George Wolfe of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. The story centers on a recording session for blues icon Ma Rainey (Viola Davis) and trumpet player Levee (Boseman). Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman and Michael Potts are also here, promising a fantastic time at the movies. It’ll drop on Netflix on December 18.
