    A new teaser trailer has hit the net.

    Thoughts?

    J.Hud could definitely get the nomination. Possibly Mary J. Blige & Marlon Wayans too.

    Looks good but nothing took my breath away.

    Haven’t seen the new trailer yet, but I don’t think we’ll need to keep our eye on Marlon Wayans. We’ve already seen Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler get rejected by awards bodies when they gave acclaimed performances likely due to their previous immature comedies (though in Sandler’s case last year, he had an extremely crowded field), and I don’t imagine that Wayans will manage to get much farther than the two of them as I don’t think he’s been in something well received since Requiem for a Dream.

    I didn’t see an ounce of Aretha in that performance.

    I’m here for it. The trailer is promising.

    Even if the film turns out mediocre, J.Hud could very well secure a nomination….and possibly a win. Especially if RESPECT goes Comesy/Musical at the Globes.

    We’ve seen a trend in recent years of the Oscars succumbing to the conventions of biopics. Rami, Gary, Mahershala, & Renee all won.

    Also, Jen will have a narrative. Aretha is beloved. Everyone loves her. So best believe this movie will be seen.

    Not to mention, it’s a great comeback vehicle for a former winner. MGM is going to campaign HARD!

    I predict someone from the supporting cast will break through. Definitely Mary. But I’d watch out for Forest Whitaker, Audra Macdonald, or Marlon Wayans.

    One of two things is about to happen.

    Either Jennifer Hudson is gonna go 2 for 2 at the Oscars…

    …or she will be the Taron Egerton to Renee Zellweger’s Rami Malek

    Excited for this. I liked Marlon in Requiem. Maybe this’ll be his time to shine.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    I don’t understand this casting decision at all. That was just Jennifer Hudson singing Respect. Nothing else. We’ll see…

    She’s a great singer, but a bad actress, and so I can’t see how this will work as a movie. I don’t think this will work for her a second time round, beloved as Aretha is.

    Looks like we’re getting a worthy biopic of a unique musical genius. It doesn’t look like a visionary masterpiece but it doesn’t look like an embarrassing disaster either.

    The fact that it isn’t a disaster from the teaser means it hopped over hurdle one. Now if critical response is warm and favorable — all else they need is box office — not sure how that’ll work?

    Another uninspired Oscar vehicle biopic. As an earlier poster said, it’s just Hudson singing Respect.
