Trailer: ‘Winnie’ starring Jennifer Hudson

by Seyi Lawal

When the news that Jennifer Hudson would play the role of Winnie Mandela in the biopic; ‘Winnie’, many wondered if she would pull off the act as the anti-apartheid historical figure.

From the trailer below, it’s clear she did not receive the Oscars for her singing alone, this girl can act.

Hudson stars alongside Terrence Howard who plays Nelson Mandela and it looks like Hudson may have nailed it.

Watch the movie trailer below:

  1. Yasmin/Coffee/Angelia she brought grown man to tears I just sat there and watehcd I'm glad to see her getting back out and blessing others with her voice.

  2. Jennifer Hudson you are ready for prime time baby girl. You just may make history again, so get ready for the big show…Oscar

  3. Think about it, no one sad a word about Meryl Streep when she played the "Iron Lady", her performance was not that great nor was her accent and she is an American. She did beat out Viola Davis a maid for the Oscar in "The Help" this year. Black women in Hollywood need powerful roles like this one. Jennifer Hudson should be honored and other should honor her performance as Winnie and yes she is African-American. Like Toni said, we must support this film, this is the only way to get our stories told by us.

  4. Jennifer Hudson was not given an Oscar for her singing ability, but for her acting ability and yes she can act without doubt.I see alot of critics and bloggers are very negative when it comes too her acting, but she did pull this movie off in my opinion. I would applaud both actors performance well done Hudson and Howard. Jennifer Hudson has a natural raw talent that can not be taught in school. The song Bleed For Love will be her first pop song hit. Diane Warren is one of the best at what she does and that is write love music for the greats. Jennifer Hudson interpretation of this song is so beautiful. Thank you T.D. Jakes for telling our story in the best way when others would not. Winnie is a strong woman and Jennifer delivered just that to the world. Her performance appears to be powerful. I pray that our brothers and sister from South Africa support our stories without racism from our own people. We are all the same regardless of accent…
