First Trailer for Venus & Serena Williams Story Told in 'King Richard'
"I'm not going to lets you down…" "How could you?" Warner Bros has unveiled the first official trailer for King Richard, a true story sports movie starring Will Smith & Aunjanue Ellis as the parents of tennis superstars Venus & Serena Williams. Driven by a clear vision of their future, using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons. Their father was their coach and he helped them become two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, changing the sport of tennis forever. Saniyaa Sidney stars as Venus Williams, Demi Singleton as Serena Williams, with Tony Goldwyn as coach Paul Cohen and Jon Bernthal as coach Rick Macci. The ensemble also includes Andy Bean, Kevin Dunn, and Craig Tate. This looks wonderful, and looks like it should be a big hit with audiences when it opens this fall. Especially after all the drama at this year's Olympics, this is the kind of triumphant, inspirational story we need to see.
