ReMastered: The Two Killings of Sam Cooke — Official Trailer


added: Thu, Jan 31st '19

Set to premiere next week on Netflix, check out the official trailer for "ReMastered: The Two Killings of Sam Cooke," the latest feature-length installment in the music-centric documentary series, which investigates some of the most fascinating events in music history.

Directed by award-winning documentarian Kelly Duane (Better This World, The Return), "The Two Killings of Sam Cooke" chronicles the life and career of legendary soul singer and civil rights activist Sam Cooke, who is perhaps best known for singing the chart-topping late 1950s and early 60s songs "Cupid," "Another Saturday Night," "Twistin' the Night Away," "(What A) Wonderful World," and the heart-stirring civil rights anthem "A Change Is Gonna Come."

The doc will mostly focus on Cooke's tragic death in 1964, who at 33 was shot in the chest and killed in supposed self-defense by a black female L.A. motel manager during a tense dispute. Though the details of Cooke's death have been called into question, which has since led to a number of conspiracy theories, including a possible government cover-up.

"ReMastered: The Two Killings of Sam Cooke" will start streaming Friday, February 8th, only on Netflix.

While Sam Cooke rose to stardom as a soul singer, his outspoken views on civil rights drew attention that may have contributed to his death at age 33.
