A new trailer has arrived for the new Charlie’s Angels movie, written and directed by Elizabeth Banks.
Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska are the new trio here, with Banks also starring as a new Bosley. There’s a bigger world to explore, and something that can no doubt feed a potential franchise, with Charles Townsend’s security and investigative agency now international and guided by multiple Bosleys (Djimon Hounsou and Patrick Stewart star as other Bosleys).
The soundtrack – featuring a lead track by Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Lana Del Ray – is again getting an awkward push, and the new footage doesn’t really show off much that stands out – at least for this writer. Let’s hope the chemistry between the Angels works well to drive home the friendship and “girl power” of it all, and hopefully there’s some fun action to enjoy. There’s something a little tired and manufactured about this so far though. Hopefully I’m wrong.
Charlie’s Angels will be arriving in Australia on November 14 and opening in the US on November 15.
Official synopsis for Charlie’s Angels:
Director Elizabeth Banks takes the helm as the next generation of fearless Charlie’s Angels take flight.

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.
