“You don’t know what the fucking get down is?”
Well, now we know.
With the news of 130 more countries being added to its empire, Netflix also decided to drop a trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s “The Get Down,” an episodic musical-drama about the rise of Hip Hop through funk and disco, set in the Bronx in the late 70s.
Director Baz Luhrmann (The Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby) has the main actors Shameik Moore (Dope), Jimmy Smits, Herizen Guardiola, Jaden Smith, Justice Smith, T.J. Brown Jr., Mamoudou Athie, Giancarlo Esposito, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Skylan Brooks trying to save the downtrodden New York City from self-destruction.
The synopsis reads:
“Told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens, The Get Down is a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970s New York City.”
Here is the latest teaser released on June 26th, 2016–just in time for the summer:
