Chadwick Boseman is the biopic hero of our time. First he portrayed Jackie Robinson, now he’s showing off his acting chops in Get On Up, the James Brown biopic that hits theaters on August 1. Directed by The Help‘s Tate Taylor and also starring with Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer as his mother and aunt, respectively, this looks like a brutally honest depiction of the rise of JB.

Now let’s get an entire biopic dedicated to the BMW-produced short film starring James Brown, Gary Oldman and Clive Owen, shall we?
