Warner Bros. has released a brand new featurette from the upcoming inspiring film King Richard.
The film stars Will Smith as the father of iconic tennis superstars, Venus and Serena Williams.
“The story of Richard and the story of this family is a big part of the American dream,” Smith shares in a behind-the-scenes clip. It is a true story of family, faith, triumph, and exemplifying the American Dream.
“This is a movie about family,” he says. “This is a movie about belief. This is a movie about love and triumph.”
The highly anticipated film also stars Aunjanue Ellis as Oracene Williams, the mother of the tennis superstars.
