Jennifer Hudson Shines as Aretha Franklin in ‘Respect’ Trailer (Watch)

Jennifer Hudson is earning everyone’s respect as Aretha Franklin in the new trailer for the upcoming biopic about the Queen of Soul.

Released during the BET Awards, the trailer starts off with Hudson singing her iconic song “Respect” (which the film is coined after) with the word spelled out behind her in giant neon-style letters before clips of her rise to fame are shown.

The long-awaited film follows Franklin’s life from singing in her father’s church, to becoming one of the most legendary musicians of all time. The Liesl Tommy-directed film also stars Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Marc Maron, Tate Donovan, Tituss Burgess and newcomer Sky Dakota Turner.

Franklin, who died of pancreatic cancer at the age 76, was a part of the film’s production up until her death in 2018. She received 18 Grammy Awards and was nominated a total of 44 times during her prolific career.

The film was originally scheduled to release in August, but was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will now have a limited release in the U.S. on Christmas Day, before a full wide release on January 15.
