The first trailer for the new Charlie’s Angels film directed by Elizabeth Banks has been released. The trailer confirms the news that Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey have teamed up for a collaboration. Although their song doesn’t have a title, the track – teased yesterday on Cyrus’ Instagram – features in the film’s initial trailer, which you can check out below.
In the latest reboot, the Angels will be played by Kirsten Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. The film is slated for released in the US on 15 November and in the UK on 29 November. The film is scored by Brian Tyler. The Charlie’s Angels soundtrack, co-executive-produced by Ariana Grande, will arrive via Republic Records.
The first two Charlie’s Angels films came at the start of the last decade. Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore played the Angels in Charlie’s Angels in 2000 and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle in 2003. Destiny’s Child created their smash ‘Independent Women’ for the first film, which was directed by McG.
The original Charlie’s Angels TV series ran for 110 episodes between 1976 and 1981. It starred Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith as the crime-fighting Angels, whose operations were handled by their mysterious boss Charlie. Voiced by actor John Forsythe, Charlie was only ever heard and not seen in the show. During the TV series’ original run, Fawcett-Majors, Jackson and Smith were replaced by Cheryl Ladd, Shelly Hack and Tanya Roberts.
As well as directing the film, Elizabeth Banks has co-written its screenplay with David Auburn and Jay Basu. Other cast members include Patrick Stewart, Luis Gerardo Mendez, Sam Claflin and Noah Centenio. It’s Banks’ second film as a director, following Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015.
In an interview with E! News, Kisten Stewart said, “Liz Banks is kind of the perfect person, in my eyes, to do this, and it makes the whole idea of doing something that’s already really good worthwhile.
“I like her sensibilities. I like how she approached the project with real feminine warmth. It’s very well-intentioned, and it’s grounded. It’s still going to be fun, and we’re going to, like, jump around and, like, beat people up, but it feels like there’s a good reason to do it again.”
