Rather, I should say it’s old Will Smith vs young Will Smith in the teaser for new action-thriller Gemini Man, from Oscar-winning director Ang Lee.
Smith plays Henry Brogan, an elite assassin who is pursued by another elite assassin that knows his every move before even he does.
He’ll soon find out that he is being hunted by a younger version of himself.
This innovative sci-fi action-thriller looks like it will have some deeper themes running through it, under the guise of an action blockbuster.
Themes pertaining to cloning and the ethics behind it, as well as an artificially designed human coming to terms with who they are aren’t new, though we have an excellent cast and director on board here which could make for a unique take on the subject.
The teaser for the film doesn’t give away much except for the basic plot point and glimpses of all the spectacular action that audiences can expect, and there looks to be plenty of it.
Gemini Man is Ang Lee’s first film since 2016’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which wasn’t well received, so he’ll be looking to come back strong.
Will Smith is joined by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.
The film hits cinemas on 10 October 2019, check out the cool new teaser below.
