After being discussed for sometime, we have our first look at Ang Lee’s anticipated thriller film, Gemini Man which stars Will Smith. The film features an assassin hunted by his own younger self, with Will Smith playing both the characters. The initial footage from Gemini Man came out during the CinemaCon this past month, hence it was a matter of just time till the trailer came online.
Will Smith Stars in ‘Gemini Man’ Trailer
Now that the trailer has come online, it looks really exciting and the reactions have been equally exciting from CinemaCon. You may see the Gemini Man trailer here.
While Will Smith has spent his career in action films mostly, he revealed that taking on two roles in Gemini Man is the toughest task for him as an actor until now.
“The emotional and physical challenges of making this film have been the most demanding of my career,” Smith said in a press released. “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.”
Here’s the official synopsis for Gemini Man:
“Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Will 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 directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Ang Lee and produced by renown producers Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger. Also starring are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.”
