Watch Trailer Of “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” Chadwick Boseman’s Final Film
“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” Chadwick Boseman’s final film, has released its first trailer. The film is based on August Wilson’s award-winning play of the same name.
The film shares the story of trailblazing blues artist Ma Rainey, portrayed by Viola Davis. Set in Chicago in 1927, the musicians grapple with issues of race, music, relationships, and the exploitation of Black recording artists.
The late Boseman portrayed Ma’s band member Levee, an ambitious trumpeter who aspired to make his own mark in the Chicago music scene by putting a contemporary spin on old-fashioned songs.
The film is helmed by George C. Wolfe, who won Tony awards for directing the play “Angels in America: Millennium Approaches” and the musical “Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk.” Wolfe also served as the artistic director of The Public Theater from 1993 to 2004.

Boseman was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016. It eventually progressed to stage 4, his family revealed after his death. Although he never spoke publicly about his diagnosis, he worked through his treatment for much of his film career.
