Netflix has released a very powerful trailer for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. The movie starring Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman in his final film role before his death.
It is produced by Oscar-winner Denzel Washington. The trailer which was released today, 20th October appears to be a barnstorming performance from the star who puts on a thick southern accent and wears fake teeth to transform into Ma Rainey.
Chadwick displayed his unique warmth, passion and wit once more as Levee, a character which represents everything that is antithetical towards his belief system.
It can be recalled that the Black Panther star died in August aged 43 after a secret four-year battle with colon cancer. He died with his wife Taylor and his family by his side.
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom promises to be out by December 18 on Netflix.
