Is there a soundtrack?
As of right now, no, there is not a soundtrack. They did use Sammy Davis Jr.’s song “I’ve Gotta Be Me” in the trailer, and with the series set back in the 70, 80, and ’90s, we could see one eventually, but as of right now, there is no soundtrack.
Is there a trailer for Mike?
Yes, here it is:
You know, I watched the trailer and had a wide range of feelings about it. When you close your eyes and listen, you can hear Mike Tyson’s voice, but I am not entirely sure Trevante Rhodes looks like Tyson. We only get a glimpse of what is ahead for us in the short trailer, and it gives us a lot to unpack. With that being said, Hulu’s run of successful limited series has me chomping at the bit to check this out.
