Sony has unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming tentpole ‘Charlie’s Angels’ on Thursday. The first look offers high-octane, super-spy action sequences along with franchise’s characteristic tropes like wigs, toys, clothes, and explosive mints. Billed as an action-comedy, the movie is a stand-alone spin-off to the renowned ‘Charlie’s Angels’ franchise. Elizabeth Banks steps into the shoes of a director for a second time with the movie.
The action-packed trailer is set to the tune of the single from Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey. It reveals the “new-look” of the angels Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. The clip also hints that the glamorous spies are going international with more Bosleys entering the scene.
“I think women can do anything,” Stewart’s character says to the man in the trailer.
“Just because they can doesn’t mean they should,” he replies.
“But I have so many talents,” she counters with a deceptive coyness before revealing a couple of lightning moves that pin him down.
According to the official synopsis, the angels are still working for their mysterious boss Charles Townsend who expands the reach of the agency on a global level. The plot follows a young engineer who turns up blowing the whistle about a new technology that can turn out to be a devastating weapon in the wrong hands.
While a new threat looms over the world, the smartest, bravest and deadliest women join forces to prevent it at any cost. Guided by multiple Bosleys, they take on the evil to save the world.
Banks wrote the script for ‘Charlie’s Angels’ along with Jay Basu, Craig Mazin and Semi Chellas. The actress-turned-director made her feature directorial debut with ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ in 2015. Banks also produces the movie.
Based on the popular television show of the same name that ran from 1976 to 1981, the film is the third installment in the film franchise that includes previous flicks ‘Charlie’s Angels (2000) and ‘Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle’ (2003).
‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot hits theaters on November 15, 2019. Check out the first trailer for ‘Charlie’s Angels’ below.
