Will Smith has been tugging at the heartstrings of viewers from around the world for years, and he continues to do just that in the upcoming heartwarming and inspirational biopic “King Richard”.
In the trailer just dropped by Warner Bros., Smith plays Richard Williams, the dedicated father and coach of Serena and Venus Williams.
While we know much about the Williams sisters as they stand today, the film explores their true backstory and the sheer determination of a father who raises his daughters from the streets of Compton, California into two of the greatest sportswomen the world has ever seen.
The cast also features Demi Singleton, Saniyya Sidney, Aunjanue Ellis, Tony Goldwin, Jon Bernthal and Dylan McDermott.
With a talented line-up and a tear-jerking first trailer, it would be no surprise to see this film nominated come awards season.
King Richard opens in Australian cinemas on 18th November 2021.
