The story of the late jazz musician and classical pianist Nina Simone including her rise to fame and relationship with her manager Clifton Henderson.
she has been in the sun tooo long.
Stellar comments guys. Keep it up.
Anyways, when it comes to Zoe Saldana, this looks like one of those roles where the actor or actress becomes so enthralled in their character, you as the audience can’t recognize them.
Zoe Saldana looks absolutely ridiculous. Smdh… WHY was she chosen for this role?? Better yet, why did she accept this role?!?!
Who else saw Nina Simone’s verified team bash the actress on twitter?
Just some filler until GOTG2. possibly good filler….
Bruh, is Zoe Saldana wearing dark makeup and a fake nose? Lol. Welp, that’s gonna piss some people off….
They should’ve just gotten an African American actress, that actually looks like Nina Simone, instead of getting an Afro Latina actress and then getting her to wear blackface, a kinky wig and a prosthetic nose.
wow, Oprah is a great singer!
She did a good job acting but why couldn’t they get the woman from SNL to play that looks just like Nina?
people gonna be mad af about that blackface makeup????
Zoe Saldana could put on the best performance ever, but she won’t be nominated for an Oscar. lol
what happened to the days when films weren’t based on a true story?
2016…with blackface!!! mannnnnnn
saw it already just came to dislike…..utter fuckery
THUMBS DOWN THIS GARBAGE! DISRESPECTFUL AF!!
that make up looks bad….like off putting. They did an amazing job at making her unrecognizable. whole time watching, I’m saying “whoever that is, that’s not natural” then zoe saldana’s name popped up and said “wtf”
great actress but wrong choice for this role..
Stunning Saldana !
what i can’t and won’t accept is the very obvious hypocritical stance the black community has against her. They claim she isn’t black enough to belong, yet cry a fowl to Hollywood for not making more movies featuring blacks. Get your shit together…
This is gonna flop so hard…
was looking at the thumbnail praying that wasn’t zoe. welp.
Oh Zoe, what have they done to you.
Ummmm, is that blackface?
Looks like a couple very strong performances. Should make for a good film.
i dont mind Zoe Zaldana using prosthetic makeup and everything… but seriously… isnt Hollywood a film industry? Zoe zaldana is freaking everywhere! they use ONE SINGLE actor to play EVEEEERRYY BLACK CHARACTER everywhere in one era. and Zoe Zaldana is not even BLACK. it used to be Halle Berry last decade. dont you see… they only promote ONE black actor to be on the A-list per decade
zoe hates black people in real life
Whats song name plz?
whats the name of the song from 0:40?
“Wrong kinda black” who’s rascist now. Hypocrits.
God is this Avatar Black?
2017 Oscars ” And the Oscar goes to Zoe Saldana
Terrible ..Nina rolling in her grave!
Should have got a legit dark skin girl
Be historically accurate for Christ sake. If you’re gonna play JFK,cast a white guy. If you’re gonna play Nelson Mandela,cast a black guy. Cmon really?
they hired the wrong actress.
Nominee of Oscar 2017.
Damn her face looks fake asf my god
They should’ve named this movie, Michael Blackson lol
This movie is so an Oscar bait that the title cards are made with the Oscar’s font and typo
So……who came here just to dislike?? ??
I would actually like to see actress Teyonah Parris to play this role.
this won’t go down well :/
The trailer looks like a rip off of “Get On Up”: The James Brown Story. Saldana’s performance looks solid, but her face is indeed distracting. Even if I didn’t know what she looked like, the makeup looks odd. We just saw Will Smith darker in “Concussion” and it didn’t look odd. Judging by recent biopics – the main actors will be great, but the execution might be a little sloppy. We shall see.
deserves more downvotes than the Ghostbusters trailer has
blck oscar nomineeeeee :D
so when Steve Carell wore a fake nose to look like John DuPont, or Robert DeNiro wore makeup to resemble Jake LaMotta, was that not okay?
That moment where she laughed sounded like Nina Simone and that’s why they put it in the trailer but the dining didn’t have that quality
So people are mad because she’s not black enough ? Please focus on her acting skills
first shes green, now shes…you know what nvm.
zoe saldana has been white green blue and now black
zoe is dominican blood but remember dominicans come from africans too dont be racist please
Viola Davis would’ve killed it. What a mess.
Imma love seeing Zoe Saldana play this role!
can black people do blackface?
Sooo… This is a joke right? …
Oscar nomination next year
a black person in blackface? thats a first
“blackface” never heard that word before
She looks like she sprayed tanned to long. This is b.s
I love Zoe Saldana…BUT! That makeup looks ridiculous! I always pictured the actress from The Walking Dead to play her but there are plenty of other believable actresses who could have played her without obvious make up. Hell…id rather they have hired Angela Basset for the millionth time. (Side eye)
this better get nominated for a OSCAR!!
What’s wrong with Zoe Saldana? She’s mixed with Dominican and Puerto Rican blood.
It is a super extreme talent to play a role of another race!!! Like the aliens from Avatar, and the Guardians of the Galaxy! And now a African American! ADMIRE HER! TRUE TALENT! YES SHE IS! MMMHMMM!
this is a joke
this looks awful even if they didn’t do the blackface.
Yes Zoe YES!!!
such a shame, i kinda liked Zoe and I loved Nina’s music growing up. this shit killed my buzz, Guardians might be the only Marvel movie franchise that I actively avoid now.
This feels like a bad Lifetime biopic, except Lifetime would have at least picked someone who at the very least had a similar complexion to Nina Simone.
BOYCOTT BUTTON ACTIVATED!
I can think of at least three actresses that look like her and are ACTUALLY african american
That’s weird. This is weird. Isn’t this weird?
I rebuke this and all of its works!! The devil is working! No m’am!
think this is the first non sci-fi movie ever of her but dang the make up looks fake ah
WTF!!!! WOW, REAL ZOEY. smdh black face on a Latina. that is just as bad, if a white actress did it…. i don’t know whats worse, the fact that zoey was A OK with this or that casting and the ppl over nina estates and likeness was.
viola davis or uzo aduba would of been perfect for this part!
This is bullshit! There have to be a hundred other people who could’ve played this role. Blackface in 2016?! Really?! Who do these producers expect to support this movie? The same people they’re insulting? Nah. Pass!
Cmon really guys…its so obvious…
damn Zoe Saldana goes all out.
Smh, is there anything black people don’t whine about?
Honestly, Saldana’s performance seems fantastic, but that makeup…who thought that was a good idea?
Why not just cast a real dark skinned black woman for this role? What is wrong with Hollywood
I THOUGHT PEOPLE WAS OVERREACTING BUT THIS LOOKS WORST THAN I THOUGHT SMH
