Before James Brown broke rules and shook the world, he was just a young boy with an imperfect childhood. But he always had “more funk in the trunk.”

In the latest trailer for Get On Up, in which 42‘s Chadwick Boseman plays Brown, we get a glimpse at his life story, his history with his mother, and a few of the moves that made him famous. The film also stars Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott, and Dan Aykroyd.
