Also landing in our mailbox today is the Charlie’s Angels trailer from filmmaker Elizabeth Banks. Depending on your point of view the new film reimagines reboots or remakes the Townsend Agency as a security and intelligence service that has teams of kickass women around the world. Here it is Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska playing the angels who go round giving bad guys a right good kicking.
Bosley is now the codename for the handlers of each team, with Patrick Stewart, Djimon Hounsou and Banks also playing Bosley’s in the movie which seems a bit confusing and we would have liked to se Bill Murray returning to the role. Noah Centineo, Gerardo Mendez Sam Claflin and Jonathan Tucker also star.
In August 2018, Kirsten Stewart said that ”the re-imagining is so grounded and well intentioned and really shows the way women can work together now. It tries to be warm and funny, but it lacks a kitch [sic] element that we have seen before that works so well.” Hmmm well we’ll see but the trailer seems a little uneven and slightly confusing but then we’re easily confused.
Now we like Elizabeth Banks who has always been the best thing in the Pitch Perfect movies (she directed the second film in that franchise) but she’s taken on a big task with a blockbuster movie that now only does she direct and star in but has also penned the script from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn. In fact in total there are nine writers credited to the story / screenplay for the film including Jay Basu who wrote the screenplay for the recent, ‘The Girl in the Spiders Web‘
Charlie’s Angels opens November 15th 2019 in the US and on 29th November 2019 in the UK.
