The first look trailer has arrived for ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday.’

Directed by Lee Daniels and anchored by Andra Day in the lead role, the film follows iconic Jazz singer Holiday during her career as she is targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics with an undercover sting operation led by Black Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, with whom she had a roller coaster affair.

Hotly anticipated, the movie – which also stars Trevante Rhodes – premieres February 26 on Hulu. It’s also set for UK release; details of which are expected imminently.

Ahead of the film’s arrival, watch the trailer below…

Wow. That was breathtaking. Suffice to say, it figures why there is already Oscar buzz.

We’ll most certainly be tuned in. Will you?

    This really looks good and I’m excited to see it. I just hope it accurate and truthful and not too ‘polished’ and commercialized. Also hope Lee Daniels has grown as a director. Andra surprised me, she mastered the accent and Billie southern pronunciation.

    Andre looks so good
    Look at her beautiful face.
    She looks good in the costumes also.
    Beautiful voice.

    But this movie is directed by lee Daniels, one of the worst directors in Hollywood
    Lee Daniels is just a slightly better version of Tyler Perry
    😩😩

    The reviews are in

    THE UNITED STATES VS. BILLIE HOLIDAY is another miss from director Lee Daniels.

    This one comes close to greatness at times, mostly due to the vibrant costumes & production design and Andra Day’s fiery & soulful performance but its parts don’t add up to a satisfying whole.

    😩😩😩
    Lee Daniels is bad at directing.

    Damn, we dont have good black directors
    Spike lee is very hit or miss. he has been phoning it in for the past 15 years

    This looks great! Can’t wait to see it.

    Critics are tearing the movie apart
    😩😩😩

    United States vs. Billie Holiday is atrocious & easily the worst awards movie this season.

    Andra Day is very good & gives the role her all, but she sadly can’t save this mess of a film.

    The direction, script, editing, & the bulk of the performances are all bad.

    😩😩

      Of course you would be the 1st person to bring up the negative stats. SMH! The first comment you posted was enough, but nooooooo you’re the typical trash queen that like to drag others just to make you feel good about yourself.

      I get that you may think its cute banter, but it’s annoying and makes you come across like trash!

    Can’t stand Andra’s album or her songs, BUT this looks like it might be something great. I hate that this pandemic keeps good movies out of the big screen experience in the US. Will be watching this one definitely!
