Will Smith vs Will Smith in Second Trailer for Ang Lee's 'Gemini Man'
"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.
