First Look: Notorious

There's a teaser trailer for the Notorious B.I.G. biopic making the rounds lately, and I kinda like it. The music is great, there's a grandly dramatic, dangerous tone to the whole thing, appropriately. It starts out soft and low and builds to a flashy finish.

After an exhaustive search, the filmmakers and Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace cast Brooklyn rapper Jamal "Gravy" Woolard for the title role last March. Other cast members include Angela Bassett as Biggie's mother, Derek Luke as Sean Combs, and Anthony Mackie as Tupac Shakur. Notorious opens Jan. 16, 2009. To check out the teaser,

It looks like it might not be "all that bad" but I will wait for it on Redbox so I can rent it for a dollar - that's probably all it's worth .... "I mean hey - we all work damn hard for our $!"

I want to see this movie soooo bad, from the moment I heard Angela was playing Voletta. But I can't stand Diddy so I'm sadly going to sneak into it.

Doesn't look bad. I just cringe with the thought that P Diddy is going to have more air time "promoting" this for his friend.

I smell Vh1 MC Hammer story ratings from this one! The actor who is playing biggie is spot on ,but Derek Luke as Sean Combs,Angela Bassett as Biggie’s Mom, Anthony Mackie as Tupac doesn't match. All these people are at the top of the game as far as acting, but as far as looks I just don't get it...I hope there is some good make up done!
