    Jennifer had brought great performances but her singing or talking never embodied Aretha Franklin. and this Jennifer also admitted on interview at Oprah. There’s a good example like Andra day who actually embodied Billie Holiday. I think she could do better job.

    Is this better than the mini series that came out earlier this year?

    Yes. Hudson embodies Aretha’s spirit way more than Cynthia Erivo. Who was miscast IMO.

    MGM’s Respect earned $1.05 million (-71%) on Friday for a likely $3.29 million (-63%) weekend and $15.26 million ten-day cume. That’s a brutal drop for a film that cost way too much ($55 million). Jennifer Hudson may still end up in the awards race, but it’s arguably finished as a theatrical play.

    Sure, pandemic, but there’s no way this drop is actually fine for a film which was called “crownpleaser” and “good for old audience”.

    Under normal circumstances, Respect would’ve easily made back its $55 million budget. But unfortunately we are still in the middle of pandemic.

    Those numbers are undoubtedly bad, but like I’ve said in other threads this probably would be making a lot more money if older audiences that are more familiar with Aretha were more willing to risk going to theaters in a pandemic setting.

    And just surveying members of the public on social media, the performance seems widely loved with many people even being quite defensive of Hudson and her chances. And if Bruised as a film is too little too late (which it looks like to me), I think it will be understood that Hudson would be the most likely chance for a nominee of color in that category. None of which secures her a spot, to be sure, but I’ll still keep her in my tentative fifth place spot for work in meh biopics just ahead of the likes of Chastain, Gaga, Kidman, etc.

    Was it always the plan for RESPECT to be released on demand on Friday, August 27 – just two weeks after its theatrical release? I was shocked to see it on VOD so quickly.

    I was under the impression that the theatrical-to-VOD window was reduced from the standard 90 days pre-COVID to 45 days. But 14 days for a movie this high profile was a surprise.

    News: The film flopped at box office. That’s why the early VOD release.

    One day Audra McDonald will definitely win that Oscar. It’s sad to think that the woman who played Billie Holliday so impeccably is now deemed too old to play people like Billie/Aretha in biopics because whenever she does...
