Within only a few weeks to go until The Get Down struts its streaming stuff, Netlix has released the main trailer for its musical epic.
Chronicling how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to a new art form, Baz Luhrmann’s series is in 1977, charting the rise of hip-hop through the lives, music, art and dance of the South Bronx kids who would change the world forever.
The more we see of the drama, the better it looks – and this new video is no exception to the rule. The whole thing gets down on 12th August.
New trailer for The Get Down reminds how you’ll be spending the summer
30th June 2016
“That’s how we’re going to go down – do or die.”
That’s the sound of a new trailer for The Get Down. The teaser video for Netflix’s original series may only be 30 seconds, but it’s a welcome reminder of how amazing it looks, from the 1970s New York setting to the birth of hip-hop and the cool dance moves along the way.
The whole thing is released on Friday 12th August. Just in case you’d forgotten how you’ll be spending the summer.
The new trailer for Netflix’s The Get Down has everything
6th January 2016
“The pale-faced media tells us we’re all going to hell, but maybe we’re just the first ones to light the fire.”
The stunning new trailer for Netflix’s The Get Down has been released – and it has everything. Don’t believe us? Here are some GIFs to prove it.
The 13-episode show is by Baz Luhrmann – his first music-driven drama since Moulin Rouge – and follows a gang of teenagers growing up in 1970s New York – a city that’s broken down and beaten up, violent and cash strapped. Armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans, the friends witness a city at the brink of bankruptcy giving birth to hip-hop, punk and disco.
It has dance moves.
It has passionate music, courtesy of Herizen Guardiola as Mylene Cruz, a girl with a voice from God who dreams of disco stardom.
It has romance, between Mylene and our lead hero, Ezekiel (played by Justice Smith), a smart teen determined to make his mark on the world.
It’s got crowd-surfing, as the children find themselves caught up in the decade’s thrilling new music scene.
In short, the trailer has everything. And we can’t wait to see the full series when it arrives later this year. One exchange in the trailer even predicts the conversations we’ll all be having about the show in several months’ time: “What’s The Get Down?” “You don’t know what the fucking Get Down is?”
