One of blonde-wigged seductress Kristen Stewart's first lines in this trailer is "I think women can do anything." Her unsuspecting male target says even if they can, that "doesn't mean they should" and she proceeds to prove him right (from his perspective) by kicking his ass superspy-style.
Charlie's Angels are back, and they aren't playing around. At least, not as much as they once did.
That's arguably the subtext in this first official trailer for the Elizabeth Banks-led total reboot of the TV series turned movie franchise, which stars Stewart, one-time Power Ranger Naomi Scott, and newcomer Ella Balinska. While there will always be some comedy in the inherently silly world of the Angels, it looks like Banks has decided to dial the action up even further than the previous films featuring Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymore, and Cameron Diaz.
Here's the synopsis from Sony:
In Banks’ bold vision, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend, whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally. With the world’s smartest, bravest, and most highly trained women all over the globe, there are now teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs everywhere. The screenplay is by Elizabeth Banks from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn.
Those multiple Bosleys include the likes Patrick Stewart, Djimon Honsou and Banks herself.
She's actually wearing several hats: she wrote the screenplay and directed in addition to performing her role.
Keep an eye out for the exact premiere date--Charlie's Angels will be in theaters sometime in November 2019.
