Aretha Franklin Biopic Trailer Stars Jennifer Hudson

We're getting our first look at the trailer for Respect.

And there's one clear takeaway -- Jennifer Hudson does a terrific job as Aretha Franklin.

The singer-actress, who earned an Oscar for playing the Florence Ballard-like character in Dreamgirls, nails the sound and attitude of the Queen of Soul in the first trailer for the bio-pic that's on target to premiere in December.

The trailer, which debuted on CBS's Sunday night telecast of the BET Awards, has now been posted online.
