I’m sure the mere mention of a new Ang Lee film starring Will Smith is enough to stoke the excitement of many movie lovers. Personally I’ve always found both Lee and Smith to be pretty hit-or-miss. But while the premise of “Gemini Man” may seem a little familiar on the surface, the first trailer gives just enough to at least tickle my interest.
From what I understand Smith plays an assassin looking to get out of the business. But retirement proves to be difficult when a visibly younger clone of himself shows up and throws a wrench in things. The trailer shows off a pretty interesting supporting cast of characters including Clive Owen and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Both the action and the setting look cool and the science fiction element has real potential.
“Gemini Man” doesn’t hit theaters until October 11th but you can check out the trailer below. Give it a look and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.
