In just under a few weeks, director Ang Lee and two Will Smiths will attempt to liven up the fall box office with Gemini Man. The sci-fi action flick finds Smith as aged expert assassin Henry Brogan, who suddenly finds himself targeted by another younger, gifted killer who always seems to be one step ahead of him. That killer just so happens to be a younger clone of himself, and a new Gemini Man clip shows just how efficient and lethal this clone can be – especially with a motorcycle. Read More »
Will Smith has fought the scum of the universe, a spider-loving paraplegic from the wild west, a horde of vampires, a swarm of robots, and in a few weeks, he’ll be fighting himself in Gemini Man. But soon enough he’ll take on some rival crime syndicates as the boss of one of the most notorious mobs in New York City.
Netflix has landed Will Smith to star in The Council, a movie based on the true story of Nicky Barnes, the boss of a crime syndicate made up of seven black men who ruled Harlem in the 1970s and 1980s thanks to revolutionizing the drug dealing game by partnering with Italian mafia.

If you had the chance to talk to your younger self, what would you say? That’s the premise, more or less, of Gemini Man, the upcoming sci-fi action film starring Will Smith…and Will Smith. Smith stars as an assassin named Henry who is being hunted down by a younger clone of himself, called Junior, sent to kill him by his former employer. Ang Lee directs the film in stunning 120 frames-per-second 3D, a feat that would already be impressive if not for the cutting-edge technology used to turn Will Smith into his 23-year-old self. But before you make comparisons to the “de-aging” technology used frequently by Marvel, Lucasfilm, and other studios, Smith wants to clarify: it’s not de-aging.
“The younger character is not me,” Smith said during a filmed Q&A screened after a footage presentation of Gemini Man attended by /Film. “That is a 100 percent digital character. A completely recreated character. They didn’t take my image and just stretch some of the lines. It is a completely CGI character in the same way that the lions in The Lion King are CGI characters.”
Smith’s dual performance is highlighted in the Gemini Man footage presentation, which /Film got to attend in New York City. The presentation showed three extended clips in 60 frames-per-second 3D (a step down from 120 but still in eye-popping high definition), which painted a fuller picture of what kind of action film Gemini Man will be.

What happens when your greatest enemy turns out to be yourself from 27 years ago? That’s the premise of Ang Lee‘s upcoming action thriller Gemini Man, and Will Smith is the assassin caught in the middle of it all.
The teaser trailer for Gemini Man did a good job of setting up the basic premise, something that we’ve seen play out with a variety of sci-fi concepts, ranging from time travel to clones. Now, a new Gemini Man featurette shows how they’re duplicating Will Smith and giving us a version of the actor we haven’t seen on screen since the 1990s. Will Smith plays both the 50-year old assassin Henry Brogan and Junior, the 23-year old assassin who looks just like him and just happens to have been assigned to kill him. Read More »
