Gemini Man Trailer

"Look what we created… You should be flattered." Paramount has debuted the second official trailer for Gemini Man, the next big movie made by Ang Lee (following Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk). The first trailer wasn't that impressive, but this second one amps things up and sets the stakes a bit better. This sci-fi action thriller is about an aging hitman, as played by Will Smith, who finds himself facing off against a younger clone of himself. A bit like Looper, but about a clone who doesn't realize he's a clone, and without any time travel. Lee shot this at 120FPS, also known as HFR, but they're not mentioning this at all in the marketing anymore. The key visual effects are being handled by Weta Digital. The main cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, Benedict Wong, Linda Emond, Ralph Brown, and Theodora Miranne. This looks alright, and there's some cool reveals in this trailer - lots of nifty masks. Check it out.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Ang Lee's Gemini Man, direct from Paramount's YouTube:

You can watch the first official trailer for Ang Lee's Gemini Man here, or the behind-the-scenes featurette.

Henry Brogen (Will Smith), an aging assassin attempting to exit his career, finds himself going against a younger clone of himself who can predict his every move. Gemini Man is directed by acclaimed Taiwanese filmmaker Ang Lee, director of many great films including The Wedding Banquet, Sense and Sensibility, The Ice Storm, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk, Brokeback Mountain, Lust, Caution, Life of Pi, Taking Woodstock, and Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk previously. The screenplay is written by Billy Ray, Jonathan Hensleigh, Andrew Niccol, Stephen J. Rivele, Christopher Wilkinson, and David Benioff; from an original concept created by Darren Lemke. Featuring visual effects by Weta Digital. Paramount will release Ang Lee's Gemini Man in theaters everywhere starting October 11th, 2019 this fall. Does this look better?

I believe that Ang Lee will do this one right. But, how did he come to do this?

Ang Lee is very gifted....but you're right, how the heck did he end up with this?

Besides Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon I remember Eat Drink Man Woman, Sense and Sensibiliy (to name few) and the one I love the most: The Ice Storm... Yup, I miss films like that and it looks that that version of Ang Lee is not coming back. What a waste ...

Better than the first one. I wonder if that tagline in the trailer was on purpose. Who WILL save you from yourself?

Those motorcycle scenes look great...all of it does, really. Winstead is always welcome, too, although she is unrecognizable in the trailer. Hopefully, this will be a great action movie with some philosophical insights. Ang Lee has directed some of my favorite movies, so I'm anticipating this.

Ahahahaha this is the comment of the week right here.

That poster is garbage, but like @kitano0:disqus I really dug the dirt bike scenes too. Looks like "cycle-fu" or something lol. However, Idk if those scenes alone are enough to sustain this film. Might be good for some mindless action, but everything else is just meh.

i don't see anything here that makes me want to see it. it looks ok for an action movie - i'll probably watch it when it hits cable.

Looks like a bunch of silly nonsense to me. Hate to see the great Clive Owen being part of something like this. Also, this nonsense is a long, long away from some of the great films Ang Lee has made. Pity.

A bunch of silly nonsense compared to what? Shoot Em Up?
