Netflix has unveiled the trailer for the late actor Chadwick Boseman’s final film, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.’
The Black Panther star, who died in August aged 43, has already been suggested as a contender for a posthumous Oscar for his performance in the film.
Produced by Denzel Washington, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ follows the “Mother of the Blues” singer, played by Viola Davis, and her battle for control with her white producer, while recording an album at the end of her career.
Boseman plays ambitious trumpeter Levee.
It will be released in selected cinemas in November before its Netflix launch in December.
This year saw Boseman star in Spike Lee’s ‘Da 5 Bloods’, a role that could also see him receive a posthumous best supporting actor nomination.
