Paramount Pictures unveiled an exciting new preview of its upcoming biopic, "Bob Marley: One Love," during CinemaCon 2023. The film, which tells the story of the legendary reggae singer, features Kingsley Ben-Adir as Marley and Lashana Lynch as his wife, Rita Marley. Ziggy Marley, the son of the late musician, introduced the trailer during the event.
The highly anticipated film, directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, is set to hit theaters on January 12, 2024. The screenplay was written by Zach Baylin, Frank E. Flowers, and Terence Winter, and is sure to feature an incredible soundtrack featuring some of Marley's most iconic songs, including "No Woman, No Cry," "Exodus," "Redemption Song," "Could You Be Loved," and "Buffalo Soldier."
The trailer showcases Ben-Adir's incredible transformation into Marley, charting the singer's journey from his humble beginnings in Jamaica to his rise to global stardom. It includes scenes of Marley performing in front of massive crowds, intimate moments with his family, and even a recreation of the assassination attempt he survived in 1976. The trailer concludes with Marley's famous words: "One love, one heart, one destiny."
