In a follow up to the first trailer for Gemini Man, this time Will Smith created a special intro and outro for the video. The new trailer goes deeper into the plot explaining how his character’s blood was taken to create a clone that would later be developer to assassinate him.
Then, after the trailer, Smith and director Ang Lee discuss the process of creating a film centered on Smith playing against a younger version of himself.
And while that featurette is interesting, now that Deep Fakes are taking off, a lot of what the two Hollywood insiders say about the process being so revolutionary doesn’t really hit home. In fact, this might be one of the last films in which creating a digital human is even considered something special. In just the next couple of years it’s quite possible that the theaters will filled with films starting long dead film starts in completely new roles.
Gemini Man hits theaters on Oct. 11.
