LOS ANGELES — Paramount Pictures’ innovative action-thriller Gemini Man, starring Will Smith, is not only the latest film by Academy Award®-winning Taiwanese American director Ang Lee but also an unprecedented showcase for Asian and Asian American talent both in front of and behind the camera. On screen, Benedict Wong (Dr. Strange, Avengers: Endgame), one of Hollywood’s most high-profile Asian actors, co-stars alongside Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen.
Behind the scenes, award-winning Thai American costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb (American Gods and the upcoming James Bond film No Time to Die) created the movie’s distinctive wardrobe while Filipino American stuntman Jeremy Marinas (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) served as the film’s fight choreographer.
International superstar stars in Gemini Man as both Henry Brogan, a veteran ex-Special Forces sniper turned assassin for a clandestine government organization and, with the assistance of ground-breaking visual effects, as Junior, the mysterious younger operative with peerless fighting skills who is suddenly targeting him in a global chase which takes them from the estuaries of Georgia to the streets of Cartagena and Budapest. The film opens in theaters on October 11.
