R-E-S-P-E-C-T: we’re about to seek out out what it means to you as moviegoers. MGM Studios has launched a brand new clip from Respect, the Aretha Franklin biopic starring Jennifer Hudson, and it’s certain to get you snapping your fingers, tapping your ft, and singing alongside. We already noticed one official clip with Hudson belting out the title tune, “Respect.” This newest clip has her performing one other immediately recognizable Franklin hit, “Assume.” Test it out under.
Sing together with me: “You higher assume…assume…take into consideration [whether you really want to visit theaters right now].”
The clip under does, in truth, finish with the phrases, “Solely in theaters.” That’s possibly not the most effective promoting level for a film proper now, with coronavirus variants surging throughout the nation and even movies like The Inexperienced Knight arriving online (for one night time solely, very similar to a legendary soul singer performing a live performance on the town).
Whether or not you watch Respect now or later, nonetheless, this clip has some plain verve to it.
Assume About What You’re Making an attempt to Do to Me
In the event you’re not in a rush to hurry out and see Respect in theaters this weekend given the present Covid scenario, right here’s an thought for a protected, wholesome compromise. First, you might watch the true Aretha Franklin sing a full rendition of “Think” in 4K HD on YouTube. Common Photos has a clip from The Blues Brothers on its channel and it’ll help you try this very factor.
The Blues Brothers not too long ago made an look on each Danielle Ryan‘s and Christopher Gates‘ lists of their all-time favourite films right here on /Movie. Franklin re-recorded “Assume” for the 1980 comedy and lip-synched to it in a diner the place John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd’s characters sat down on the counter to order fried hen and toasted white bread.
After watching that clip, you might watch the complete Blues Brothers film or you might go down a musical drama rabbit gap, watching Hudson in Dreamgirls or her co-star in that movie, Jamie Foxx, in his personal Oscar-winning biopic position as Ray Charles in Ray. Any certainly one of these choices may be preferable to a visit to the theater proper now.
Think about it homework in your future viewing of Respect. You may guess we’ll be the primary in line (figuratively talking) at any time when the film hits VOD. Within the meantime, you’ll be able to at all times hearken to Aretha Franklin’s music, too. Her full greatest hits album is on the market on her official YouTube channel and it begins with “Respect.”
Right here’s the official synopsis for Respect, the film, starring Jennifer Hudson:
