Last week has been a roller coaster of emotions – Russell Westbrook signed to the Los Angeles Lakers, certain cities are reinstating the mask mandate, and Simone Biles withdrew from the Olympic competition.

In the midst of all of this, Warner Bros dropped a bombshell on us, releasing the upcoming film trailer for King Richard, starring Will Smith.

Warner Bros is known for releasing extraordinary films that capture the heart of movie viewers from around the world, and the trailer shows that’s not stopping anytime soon.

Smith plays the father of two of the most electrifying female athletes to grace our presence, Venus and Serena Williams. The trailer is an exciting piece of art and keeps your attention from beginning to end. The scenery and excellent cinematography will draw you in and leave you immersed in the action.

This film is based on a true story. We have all seen triumph stories, but nothing more exciting compares to being able to get an insight into these two strong African American females and their father. Both, Serena and Venus are executive producers on the film.

The film details the upbringing of these two sisters in Compton and their rise to fame in California. 

Saniyya Sidney (Fences, Fast Color) stars as Venus Williams, Demi Singleton (TV’s Godfather of Harlem, Showbiz Kids) stars as Serena Williams and Aunjanue Ellis (If Beale Street Could Talk) plays their mother, Oracene “Brandi” Williams.

In the trailer, Will Smith gives a powerful emotional Oscar award-winning performance in his role as King Richard being a father, mentor, and coach raising his two phenom daughters.

I know fans alike have always been fascinated and intrigued by the two sisters, and now they get to embark on the journey of the sisters’ story in this motion picture. 

This film is directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green (Monsters and Men, Joe Bell) and is slated to drop on November 19th, 2021 in theaters and on HBOMAX.
