- Netflix’s new star-studded Western film The Harder They Fall includes a tribute to Chadwick Boseman.
- Boseman passed away in August 2020 following a battle with colon cancer.
- The tribute can be seen on the side of a train named “C.A. Boseman”.
While it’s been over a year since the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, his passing still just doesn’t quite feel real. Whether it be his Academy Award nomination in the Spring or the production of the Black Panther sequel in the Summer, Boseman’s presence has lingered throughout pop culture.
The Harder They Fall, Netflix’s new Western film from rookie director Jeymes Samuel, is yet another example of Boseman’s legacy reverberating throughout the industry, as the film includes a pretty on-the-nose tribute to Boseman, whose full name was Chadwick Aaron Boseman (C.A. Boseman).
In case you haven’t already checked out The Harder They Fall (which you absolutely should, because it’s awesome and dare I say Tarantino-esque), the film follows legendary cowboy Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) as he seeks revenge on his recently-freed-from-prison enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba). Riding with Nat Love are the likes of Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi), Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler), and Bass Reeves (Delroy Lindo), while the Rufus Buck Gang is rolling with “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield).
The Harder They Fall — which stars Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Regina King, Lakeith Stanfield, Zazie Beets, Delroy Lindo, Deon Cole, and more — is currently streaming on Netflix.
