Honestly, the upcoming James Brown Biopic, Get On Up, looks pretty damn good. From most of the reports and trailers, it’s pretty safe to say that actor Chadwick Boseman nailed the part of the Godfather of Soul.

The movie will be released nationwide on August 1st and also co-stars Dan Aykroyd, Nelsan Ellis, Tika Sumpter, Josh Hopkins, Fred Melamed and more. Fans can also purchase the Get on Up soundtrack on July 29, which features live and studio cuts including “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, Pt. 1,” “Super Bad,” “Please Please Please,” “The Payback Pt. 1,” and, of course, the 1970 classic from which the film gets its title, “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine.” Get on Up hits theaters August 1.
