KEEPING IT REEL

‘Gemini Man’

Not that Will Smith isn’t looking great for his age now, but when you see the younger version of himself in this sci-fi number, it will spirit you back to the days of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.

The CGI in the trailer alone will make you realise that Skydance Media and Bruckheimer Films are putting some serious bucks into this movie, directed by Ang Lee.

Smith is Henry Brogan, an elite assassin who becomes the target of a mysterious operative who can seemingly predict his every move. To his horror, he soon learns that the man who’s trying to kill him is a younger, faster, cloned version of himself.

That would give any of us the willies (ha!) wouldn’t it?

Will Smith could use a winner. Although he ended up being much better as the Genie in ‘Aladdin’ than originally believed, his hits have recently been few and far between.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen also star, along with Douglas Hodge and Benedict Wong.

‘The Addams Family’

Get ready to snap your fingers; the most loveable, creepy family is back and they are animated! It is hard to  believe that they are still going after this many years. Did you know that they originally appeared in The New Yorker in 1938 as a comic strip? Since then, they have been a TV series and starred in numerous feature films.

In this latest story, Gomez and his wife Morticia, their daughter Wednesday, son Pugsley and Uncle Fester square off against a reality television show host. We can only imagine the japes.

Where do we even begin with the voice cast? Charlize Theron leads things off as Morticia Addams with Oscar Isaac as Gomez.

Finn Wolfhard is Pugsley, Chloe Grace Moretz is Wednesday, the sublime Catherine O’Hara is Grandma Frump and no less than Bette Midler is Grandma. Like Cher, her character has one name.

Of course, you can expect to see Lurch, Cousin Itt and the hand simply named ‘Thing’. Should be ghoulishly good fun.
