"You're special, Re… You have a talent they call 'genius'." MGM has released a full-length official trailer for Respect about the life of legendary singer Aretha Franklin. The film stars Jennifer Hudson as the singer, and it aims to tell her entire life story - from her start as a child singing in her father's church's choir to her superstar fame performing around the world. This was initially scheduled to open last year (watch the teaser trailer), but has been delayed a year - now set to arrive this August. The cast features Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Tituss Burgess, Saycon Sengbloh, Skye Dakota Turner, Hailey Kilgore, Marc Maron, Tate Donovan, and Mary J. Blige.
