It should be relatively easy for Fox Searchlight to create a trailer for their upcoming rapper biopic Notorious. All they need to do is leave the screen black and run through a playlist of Biggie's hits. That alone should get people's attention. But I get the need for visuals too.
Notorious is about the life of rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. In just a few short years, The Notorious B.I.G. rose from the streets of Brooklyn to become one of the most influential hip hop artists of all time. B.I.G. was a gifted storyteller; his narratives about violent life on the streets were told with a gritty, objective realism that won him enormous respect and credibility. His stories were universal and gave a voice to his generation.
