There was a time when it felt like Justin Timberlake would never sing again. Instead, JT became laser-focused on becoming a movie star, and his fans feared that they would never get a follow up to Justified, the 2002 magnum opus that solidified Timberlake’s place as the heir apparent to—dare we say it—Michael Jackson’s throne.
Then, like a bat out of hell (or Memphis rather), Timberlake dropped The 20/20 Experience. It was a reclamation of his rightful place atop the pop landscape, and a reminder that when he’s on, there are few artists as compelling as him. So what’s next? Does he go back to movies, or broaden his pop star oeuvre? How about a little bit of both? On Friday, Netflix dropped the first trailer for Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids, a concert film featuring all kinds of footage from the last leg of Timberlake’s sprawling 20/20 Experience World Tour.
While Timberlake is worth the price of admission alone, it’s his band, the 25-member Tennessee Kids, who really crackle. It’s no wonder Netflix is going all out for their latest acquisition, which has its glitzy premiere next week at the Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the first trailer below.
