Watch: Will Smith Battles Younger Self In New Film ‘Gemini Man’
Ever wondered what it’ll be like to battle with the younger version of YOU?
Well, this new action-thriller Gemini Man starring Will Smith has all the answers.
Paramount Pictures recently released a new trailer for the upcoming film, directed by Oscar-winning director, Ang Lee. The clip sees Smith’s Henry Bogan, an elite assassin, battle a mysterious young operative who is able to predict his every move.
Later, Bogan discovers that he is facing off with a younger version of himself, known as “Junior” — also played by Smith, aided by de-aging digital technology — and offers a bigger glimpse into the complicated relationship shared between Bogan and Junior.
Smith, speaking at the press preview, said: “Ang told me ‘I need to have you act less good,’ and he would show me some of the old performances. … Weta pulled out all of this old footage so I got to see all the tragedies I committed in entertainment. … The VFX team has outdone themselves.”
The sci-fi epic also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong. The script was penned by David Benioff, Billy Ray and Darren Lemke from a story by Benioff and Lemke. Producers include Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.
Gemini Man hits theaters on October 11.
