TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • This look promising: Will the studio release it to streaming services if theaters can't reopen later this year?
  • Broadway theaters announced today that they'll remain closed for the rest of the year.
  • Hudson deserves credit as one of today's greatest singer-actors.
  • How did she not win during her season on American Idol?

And there's one clear takeaway --Jennifer Hudson does a terrific job as Aretha Franklin

The singer-actress, who earned an Oscar for playing the Florence Ballard-like character in Dreamgirls, nails the sound and attitude of the Queen of Soul in the first trailer for the bio-pic that's on target to premiere in December.

The trailer, which debuted on CBS's Sunday night telecast of the BET Awards, has now been posted online.
