On Tuesday (Mar. 1), viewers were introduced to the official poster for the forthcoming Nina Simone biopic starring Zoe Saldana, and the film’s release date. Twenty-four hours later, the movie’s trailer debuted to showcase what to expect ahead of its arrival.
The visual opens with Simone’s rendition of “Black Is The Color (Of My True Love’s Hair)” and sends spectators on a roller coaster ride of emotions from the pinnacle of the legendary artist’s career to her low points.
Nina has made its rounds on the entertainment news circuit for two years now, since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The reel, amidst its backlash, announced April 22 as its theatrical debut.
