Apologies if this has been mentioned before but just chanced across this trailer for upcoming Miles Davis biopic released in UK on April 22nd starring Don Cheadle.  Might be good...
And will you shorten the sleeves, love? I'm not a gorilla.

It looks promising, if a bit over the top. Anyway, I've heard the story has to do more with 70s Miles than his classic 50s/60s era. Anyway, I'll give it a try if only for the cool quotient. The man embodied cool.

Quite like Don Cheadle as an actor (apart from his laughable Dick Van Dyke accent in the Oceans franchise!), so I'll probably give this a viewing

That's an interesting article and one which was so damn evident from watching the film. The Ewan McGregor character was so out of keeping with the rest of the film and so distracting it really spoilt the whole thing for me. Cheadle was great as Davis and the general concept of the film in the way it flits back and froth to (kinda) tell the story through as fictionalized way worked well. And then there's a soppy unbelievable Scottish character getting in the way. Real shame.

Really hate bio pics, much prefer a good documentary on the person.
Not stuck in the 60's

Don't think you'll find any arguing with that.
