Ang Lee’s love for visual effects is on display with his films Hulk, Life of Pi and most recently Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. With Gemini Man, Lee teams up with Will Smith in an ambitious thriller that employs the de-aging visual effects process (which was used this year for Samuel L. Jackson in Captain Marvel).
Smith plays Henry Brogan, an elite assassin who is being targeted by younger operative (also Smith) who knows his very move. The flick co-stars Clive Owen and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. As much as I am excited about the Smith and Lee pairing, the picture slightly reminds me of Looper (sans the time travel element). Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Gemini Man hits theaters October 11.
