The Early Buzz: Director Tate Taylor follows up 2011's Oscar contender "The Help" with the rags-to-riches musical biopic of soul singer and eminent Southerner James Brown ("42" star Chadwick Boseman). Oscar nominee Viola Davis, Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, Dan Aykroyd, and Jill Scott co-star in a film distributor Universal hopes will make the similar impact on the awards race to its 2004 biopic "Ray."
