The First Official Trailer For James Brown Biopic (video)

“Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic is set for U.S. release on Aug. 1.

“42″ star Chadwick Boseman portrays the Godfather of Soul in the film that recounts his impoverished childhood, time in prison and ascendancy to super-stardom. The story also follows Brown’s mother, played by Viola Davis, who abandoned him at age 6, and his aunt (played by Octavia Spencer), who raised him in a brothel.

Mick Jagger (and Victoria Pearman) are producing under their Jagged Films banner.

This looks amazing:

Snake in a Cab Prank Has Hissed Some People Off (video)

A comedian with a New York City taxi license pranked customers by surprising them with a python.

The comedian would pick up his victims, throw a python in the backseat and then get footage of them flipping out on camera.

He calls his two-minute short film, ‘Snakes in a Cab’ after the cult film ‘Snakes On a Plane,’ and passengers can be seen cursing and yelling on camera.

The comedian may be getting his license revoked over the prank, but he insists that he’s just “trying to promote a book and have fun.”
