Director Ang Lee‘s Gemini Man marks the first time Will Smith and Clive Owen have teamed up together.
Smith portrays a man by the name of Henry Brogan, an aging assassin who is ready to retire. In the just released (April 23) trailer, we see that it may not be up to him as there’s a killer-for-hire on his heels. It turns out, the operative doesn’t have to predict Brogan’s moves, he somehow knows them in advance.
There’s a reason the man trailing him appears to be in Brogan’s head, it’s because he’s his clone. The clone is 25 years in the making, has all the gifts of the elder version, minus his pain, according to the first look footage.
But, he’s not a robot, he is in fact a human clone, and as humans do, he learns.
His conscious gets the better of him, like when he says to the head of cloning, Clay Verris (Owen): “You made a person out of another person. Then you sent me to kill him. You made a choice to do this to me. ”
Verris defines this as… fear.
We can also look for Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Fargo TV series), Benedict Wong (Avengers: Endgame) and Linda Emond.
