Watch Trailer for ‘Gemini Man’ starring Will Smith (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Check out the exciting new trailer for Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Ang Lee‘s Gemini Man starring Will Smith. It dropped early Tuesday afternoon and already has over 4 million views.

Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move. 

The film is produced by renown producers Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger. Also starring are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.

“The emotional and physical challenges of making this film have been the most demanding of my career. Ang is pushing the limits to give people an experience in the movie theater that you can’t get anywhere else. This is not only an action film, but an exploration of what one’s younger self can ultimately teach one’s older self. I’m 50-years-old now, and the irony of becoming 23-year-old Junior in this film is that 23-year-old me wouldn’t have been ready for this experience or to take on this role. Our hope is that this story provides something for everyone — never before seen cinematic wizardry, nuanced, relatable characters and next-level action,” said Smith in a statement.

Gemini Man opens in theaters October 11.

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Check out the trailer for the hilariously new comedy Little. It opens in theaters on April 12, 2019.

Girls Trip‘s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders – Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation.

Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line.
