    WILL SMITH’S EPIC ACTION THRILLER 

    “GEMINI MAN” DROPS TEASER TRAILER

     



    The official teaser trailer for Paramount Pictures’ Gemini Man has just been unveiled.  Will Smith stars as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin in the epic action-thriller, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ang Lee.

    Check out the trailer below and watch Gemini Man in Philippine cinemas October 2019.



    Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Will Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move.  

     

    The film is directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Ang Lee and produced by renown producers Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.  Also starring are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.  

     

    “This story is not one that could have been told with cinema as we know it,” shares Ang Lee. “However, thanks to incredible new digital technology, not only can we finally see both younger and older Will Smith embodied together on screen, but we can also experience the story in a deeply immersive way. It is my great fortune to be able to experiment and test the limits of what new digital cinema has to offer us. No less so to be able to work with two Will Smiths - One beautifully sophisticated, the other exuberantly honest. In my opinion, this is Will at his very best, and when the two come together, it is something truly magical. Further, the immense effort and technical skill of the crew in creating a new aesthetic, between the cinematography, art department, visual effects, and technical team, was both inspiring and heartwarming. I truly hope that this movie delivers a completely new theatrical cinematic experience to audiences across the world.”

     

    “The emotional and physical challenges of making this film have been the most demanding of my career,” says Will Smith. “Ang is pushing the limits to give people an experience in the movie theater that you can’t get anywhere else. This is not only an action film, but an exploration of what one’s younger self can ultimately teach one’s older self. I’m 50-years-old now, and the irony of becoming 23-year-old Junior in this film is that 23-year-old me wouldn’t have been ready for this experience or to take on this role. Our hope is that this story provides something for everyone -- never before seen cinematic wizardry, nuanced, relatable characters and next-level action.”

    ANG LEE MAGNIFIES THE THRILLS IN ACTION-PACKED “GEMINI MAN”








     

    Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Ang Lee directs Gemini Man, an innovative action-thriller starring Will Smith as both Henry Brogan, a veteran ex-Special Forces sniper turned assassin for a clandestine government organization; and, with the assistance of ground-breaking visual effects, as Junior, the mysterious younger operative with peerless fighting skills who is suddenly targeting him in a global chase.

     



     

    Lee, who had worked in a wide range of genres, infusing them with an artful balance of humanism and cinematic innovation, immediately perceived the more complex aspects of the story, as well as its ability to entertain.

     

    “There were a few things about the project that really got to me,” Lee shares. “The concept of a man facing a version of himself in an action thriller, in kind of an existential environment, is a very attractive idea. I think a person facing his younger self, or the younger self facing his future—when they face that conflict and negotiate through each other’s character, what they’re going to learn from each, what the conflict could be—is existential. Not only how a man can look back on his life and see what could be corrected, what could be done better, not only reflecting on one’s life, but all the other issues. It’s a fascinating, very provocative idea.”

     

    “However, you don’t want to get heavy-handed, we still want to entertain a broader audience,” continues the filmmaker. “It’s an action movie, so the audience needs to get the thrilling and amusing parts of the movie. So the tone of Gemini Man is quite tricky. I want drama and I want levity, and I’ve got to have some kind of a wicked sense of humor to blend the two together.”

     

    During months of active pre-production - casting the other roles in the film, assembling the team of top-notch behind-the-scenes artists - there was also a huge amount of ongoing research and development to create a landmark photoreal all-digital main human character for the first time. There was also the added layer of Ang Lee’s decision to shoot Gemini Man in 120 frames per second as opposed to the usual 24, as well as in 4K resolution and in 3D, creating a fully immersive experience for the audience, even those watching in theatres not fully equipped to project the film in those formats.

     

    Says the director: “Technology helps us to visualize what we want to see. I think that visual effects can be visual art, which we use to tell a story and to visualize what is abstract. You make the impossible visual. You preserve what’s in our imagination.”

     

    “It’s definitely going to change how movies are made and how movies are seen,” says Will Smith. “Ang is really pushing the limits of how people consume this type of entertainment. He’s pushing really hard to give people an experience in the movie theatre that they can’t get anywhere else.”

     

    In Philippine cinemas October 9, Gemini Man is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

    MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD IS WILL SMITH’S ALLY IN “GEMINI MAN”

     

    Before she ignites the screen as The Huntress on the highly anticipated DC film Birds of Prey in February 2020, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) will first join forces with Will Smith in Paramount Pictures’ Gemini Man, in Philippine cinemas October 9.

    Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move. The film is directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Ang Lee and produced by renowned producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

    The role of Danielle “Danny” Zakarewski, a young, ex-Navy DIA agent who meets Henry Brogan by surveilling him, is portrayed by Winstead, an actress who producer Jerry Bruckheimer calls “one of the most talented and versatile of her generation.”

    “We saw Mary in the television version of Fargo,” notes Bruckheimer, “and thought she was an amazing actress, who could embody the kind of agent she plays in the film, someone smart, physical and who the audience comes to care about.”

    In Gemini Man, Winstead gets to flex both her acting and physical muscles in a role which demands both. Danny is a straight shooter and a true believer in her country, having served four years with the U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet in Bahrain, and the daughter of an FBI agent who died trying to prevent a robbery while off-duty.

    “Danny doesn’t really ask questions,” Winstead explains of her character, “she just does her job. She believes that she works for a good organization that wouldn’t go after somebody who hasn’t done something really, really wrong. But she believes that Henry is a good person, and so they end up going on this journey together to figure out what’s going on, and why he’s being targeted.

    Gemini Man is a fun ride,” she continues, “The film asks a lot of questions about ourselves, what we believe in, who we are now and who we’re going to be. And because it’s an Ang Lee film, he’s a director who is always asking esoteric questions under the guise of this really fun popcorn action film.”

    Winstead was delighted to work with Will Smith. “Working with Will, you’re just surrounded by this positive energy at all times,” she says. “I feel so lucky to be working with somebody like him, who every day comes in and says wow, ‘we’re so lucky to be here making a movie and being in this industry’. It’s really infectious and makes everybody else kind of go hey, yeah, we ARE really lucky to be here! And wow, we’re shooting in all these amazing places. And you just feel that sense of awe just to be a part of something so great. Will infuses every moment with that energy.”

    WATCH “GEMINI MAN” IN 3D HFR FORMAT 

    IN SELECTED PH CINEMAS


     

    Paramount Pictures’ new action-thriller Gemini Man utilized the High Frame Rate (HFR) technology designed to dramatically enhance the movie-going experience for audiences.

     

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhN-aK-7yLo&feature=youtu.be

    Director Ang Lee shot the film in 120 frames per second (as opposed to the standard 24 fps), as well as in 4K 3D, which creates incredible visual and aural immediacy for the audience.

     

    In the Philippines, moviegoers can experience Gemini Man in 3D HFR format in Ayala Vertis North, Ayala Fairview Terraces, Robinsons Movieworld Magnolia, Robinsons Movieworld San Pedro Laguna and Vista Cinemas IMAX With Laser at Evia Lifestyle Center.

     

    Gemini Man is the first major feature film to create a photoreal all-digital main human character.  Says the director: “Technology helps us to visualize what we want to see. I think that visual effects can be visual art, which we use to tell a story and to visualize what is abstract. You make the impossible visual. You preserve what’s in our imagination.

     

    “Because movies are photorealistic by nature, digital cinema is more real, immersive, dimensional, our two eyes looking at it as much as we look at life,” adds Lee. “I think any media, certainly movies, are always progressing. I think taking people to a new world, a new possibility, a new existence, is exciting. Gemini Man has an exciting story to tell, but first we had to create a digital world, a movie world, to make that story possible.”


    International superstar Will Smith stars in Gemini Man as both Henry Brogan, a veteran ex-Special Forces sniper turned assassin for a clandestine government organization; and, with the assistance of ground-breaking visual effects, as Junior, the mysterious younger operative with peerless fighting skills who is suddenly targeting him in a global chase which takes them from the estuaries of Georgia to the streets of Cartagena and Budapest.

     

    The film is produced by renown producers Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.  Also starring are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.
