The Final Chadwick Boesman Film's Trailer Is Released


Chadwick Boseman's, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is the final film from the late actor on Netflix and is slated for release on December 18.

After teasing the movie with images and stills, the streaming service has delivered Ma Rainey's first trailer.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is an adaptation of a stage play of the same name and stars Boseman, Viola Davis, Glyn Turman, Taylour Paige, and Coleman Domingo. Denzel Washington produced it along with Todd Black and Dany Wolf. The film centers around real-life music legend Ma Rainey, the "Mother of the Blues" portrayed by Davis. Boseman plays Levee, a young man that comes up in the 1920 Chicago blues scene.

Levee is an ambitious horn player looking to stake his claim in the industry while Rainey is feeling pressure from White music executives seeking more control of her voice.
