The reboot button was once again hit for Charlie’s Angels. Following McG’s early 2000s films and even a 2011 television series, Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts’ original creation is now in the hands of Elizabeth Banks. Written by, directed by, produced by, and even starring Banks, the first trailer has now arrived for the action feature, coming this November.
Led by Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska, it’s another globe-trotting adventure of espionage. “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. When I’m at work, I don’t talk about those things. I get on with my job,” Banks told EW. “It felt important to do that for the Angels, to treat them with the respect their skill set demands.”
See the trailer below.
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.
Charlie’s Angels opens on November 15.
