Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down Trailer


Although HBO’s Vinyl failed to find an audience earlier this year, Netflix is hoping that their own ’70-set musical TV series will have a different outcome. Created by Baz Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge), the show is called The Get Down and it takes place in New York City in the late ’70s, focusing on how a broken down city gave birth to a musical revolution that included punk, disco and hip-hop. A previously released teaser trailer helped set the scene and establish the mood, but it didn’t feature any actual footage from the show. Now this week Netflix has released a short new trailer that gives us our first real look at the upcoming series. The Get Down stars Jaden Smith, Shameik Moore, Zabryna Guevara, Jimmy Smits and Giancarlo Esposito and the first six episodes will arrive on Netflix on August 12th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
