On Tuesday Nina got a release day. Today, we get the trailer.
The film, based loosely on Nina Simone's life, was directed by Cynthia Mort and filmed in 2012. Since the first images from the set emerged, lovers of Nina Simone's work and legacy have protested the choice for Zoe Saldana to portray the icon.
Saldana is a gifted actress, but the face and body paint she had to utilize to achieve Simone's complexion were off-putting.
Zoe Saldana said last year that she was unhappy with the film, and we can see why.
The film will premiere in theaters and video on demand April 22.
Watch the trailer below.
