We have our first little taste of the upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot. And we do mean little. Sony Pictures has released a very brief teaser for this continuation of the franchise, which doesn't give us a whole lot, in itself. It does, however, promise that a trailer is coming down the pipeline in the very near future, which will give us our first proper look at the new Angels in action. For now though, we're still left to wonder what this is going to look like.
The teaser is just a symbol for the Townsend agency with a catchy little tune playing in the background. The word "uploading" appears below the symbol, which seems to be alluding to the forthcoming trailer. Beyond that, we've got very little to go on when it comes to what to expect from the trailer, as this doesn't provide us with even a shred of actual footage from Elizabeth Banks' take on the classic and iconic 70s series.
While it's promised that the trailer is coming tomorrow, we will be getting something a bit sooner. It was revealed that a "first look" will be showcased on Entertainment Tonight this evening. They didn't specifically say what that first look will consist of though.
Elizabeth Banks, who previously helmed Pitch Perfect 2, is in the director's chair for the reboot. The new cast includes Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Personal Shopper), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers, Aladdin) and newcomer Ella Balinska. A photo of the trio together was released online a while back, but we've still yet to actually see them in action. Previously, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore portrayed the trio in a pair of movies directed by McG in the early 2000s. Though, it sounds very much like this is going to be a pretty big departure from what we were provided with the better part of two decades ago.
Charlie's Angels centers on a trio of agents who are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend. In this new take on the classic, his security and investigative agency has expanded its reach internationally. With the world's smartest, bravest, and most highly trained women placed all over the world, there are now teams of Angels who are partnered up with multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs in any location necessary. Elizabeth Banks will be playing one of the new versions of Bosley, with Djimon Hounsou (Shazam) and Patrick Stewart (Logan) portraying two others.
Elizabeth Banks, in addition to starring in and directing the movie, also penned the screenplay. Needless to say, she's been busy. Banks was working from a story cooked up by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn. Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I've Loved Before) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You) also star. Charlie's Angels, after having its release date shuffled around several times, is set to arrive in theaters on November 15. We'll be sure to bring the trailer your way tomorrow.
