Apple TV+ has released a new trailer for its upcoming Apple Original Film called The Banker, coming to select theatres on December 6, 2019:
Based on a true story, “The Banker” centers on revolutionary businessmen Bernard Garrett (Anthony Mackie) and Joe Morris (Samuel L. Jackson), who devise an audacious and risky plan to take on the racially oppressive establishment of the 1960s by helping other African Americans pursue the American dream. Along with Garrett’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), they train a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire – while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur. Their success ultimately draws the attention of the federal government, which threatens everything the four have built.
On top of starring in the film, Samuel L. Jackson is an executive producer and Anthony Mackie is a producer of the movie. The trailer looks good and can be seen below:
The Banker will stream on Apple TV+ starting January 31, 2020 (via Glamour).
