MEET THE NEXT GENERATION OF ACTOR
Gemini Man is a pulse-pounding, high intensity sci-fi thriller exploring the nature of identity, the moral limitations of technology, and the duality of man (literally), but take a closer look and there’s even more beneath the surface.
The big-budget story of a retired assassin going head-to-head with his younger clone (both portrayed by Will Smith) is the culmination of literal years of programming, image-capturing, and fine-tuning by 500 artists at six visual effects studios.
The younger Smith is no de-aged performance; he’s a fully-articulated, computer-generated model made from whole cloth by the best VFX designers in the business. The first of his kind, “Junior” represents a lightyears-ahead leap forward for sci-fi and the film industry at large. Partly reconstructed from 90s performances by Smith like Bad Boys and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, partly based on motion-capture by the current-day actor, the fully-3D model represents untold possibilities for the future of filmmaking.
