When Serena Williams tells you not to miss out on a movie, you make sure not to miss out on the movie. Warner Bros. recently dropped the newest trailer for their upcoming film, King Richard, with some help from Serena and Venus Williams, alongside the film’s star, Will Smith. Smith plays the Williams sisters' father, Richard Williams, in this compelling biopic, coming to screens both big and small today, Nov. 19.
“Seeing this film (based on Venus’ and my true story) come to life has been one of the coolest experiences.” Serena wrote on Instagram.
After over a year of delays due to the pandemic, King Richard was set to be released on Nov. 19, and will be available to watch the old fashioned way-- AKA in theaters. But if you’ve grown accustomed to watching the newest releases from the comfort of your couch, worry not. Throughout 2021, all new Warner Bros. films will be available to stream on HBO Max at no additional cost for a 30-day period following the film’s theatrical release.
The film follows the journey of Richard Williams as he raises his daughters into tennis icons. Based on the true story of Serena and Venus Williams’ childhood, the movie explores Richard’s experience with fatherhood and his efforts to secure his daughters’ futures in the sports world. While the odds seem stacked against them in the latest trailer, Richard appears certain that he has “the next two” Michael Jordans on his hands. And as well all now know, he was right.
