Written and directed by Elizabeth Banks, the high-octane trailer gives fans a closer look at the new characters and the Angels in action. Kristen Stewart will be playing Sabina Wilson, a highly-skilled wild card; Ella Balinska as Jane Kano, the group’s ex-MI6 muscle; and finally Naomi Scott as Elena Houghlin, an MIT-trained scientist. Banks, along with Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou, will play the role of Bosley. Sprinkled into the visuals is Noah Centineo, from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before fame. Additionally, throughout the trailer the theme song performed by Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey can be heard.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
“Charlie’s Angels have always provided security and investigative skills to private clients, and now the Townsend Agency has expanded internationally, with the smartest, most fearless, most highly trained women all over the globe – multiple teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs across the world. When a young systems engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, these Angels are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect us all.”
On the project Banks shared that the film isn’t a reboot or remake but more so a continuation of the original 1970’s TV series and the 2000’s films starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. “It was important to me to make a movie about women working together and supporting each other, and not make a movie about their romantic entanglements or their mother they don’t call enough,” Banks told Entertainment Weekly. “When I’m at work, I don’t talk about those things. I get on with my job. It felt important to do that for the Angels, to treat them with the respect their skill set demands.”
Charlie’s Angels is slated for a November 15, 2019 release.
Along with the second trailer Sony released a new theatrical poster showcasing the powerful women in all-black.
