HBO Max released the trailer for King Richard, starring Will Smith. The biopic is based on the life of Venus and Serena Williams' no nonsense father Richard Williams.

The casting of Will Smith as Richard Williams was criticized because Smith is light skin and Williams is dark skinned in real life.

The Williams sisters dominated women's tennis in the 1990s and 2000s. Serena, 39, is on pace to tie the record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles in the Open era.

King Richard was produced on a budget of $100 million.

King Richard opens in theaters everywhere on November 19.

Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!! Teaming up with @YouTube to get my health & wellness back on track. Hope it works!"

    Will Smith and director Antoine Fuqua have pulled their runaway slave movie out of Georgia due to controversial voter ID law.

    Smith's new slavery film titled, Emancipation, was scheduled to begin filming on in Atlanta in June, but he is now looking for a new location.

    Smith, who is starring in, as well as producing the movie, blamed "institutional racism," for his decision.

    "The new Georgia voting laws are reminiscent of voting impediments that were passed at the end of Reconstruction to prevent many Americans from voting. Regrettably, we feel compelled to move our film production work from Georgia to another state."

    The movie, based on a true story, will likely be filmed in Louisiana, where the actual events took place.

    In the film, Smith plays a slave who escaped the plantation and joined the Union Army after he was whipped to within an inch of his life.

    The historic photo of the ex-slave's scarred back, taken during an Army medical examination, became known as "The Scourged Back."

    The photo was published by The Independent and Harper's Weekly in 1863, and served to embody the cruelty of slavery in America.

    "It was the first viral image of the brutality of slavery that the world saw, which is interesting, when you put it into perspective with today and social media and what the world is seeing, again," Fuqua told Deadline last year. "You can't fix the past, but you can remind people of the past and I think we have to, in an accurate, real way."

    Emancipation is the first film to pull out of Georgia since the new laws went into effect.

    Major League Baseball pulled the All-Star game out of Georgia after Gov. Brian Kemp signed the new election bill into law in March.

    The new election law requires identification to submit absentee ballots by mail.

    Newcomer actor Cedric Joe has landed the coveted role of Emmett Till in the limited series Women of the Movement, produced by Jay Z and Will Smith.

    The six-episode series, set to premiere in 2021, will revolve around Till's mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, who devoted her life to seeking justice for her teenage son following his murder in the mid-1950s.

    The 14-year-old Chicago native was killed by members of the KKK while vacationing with his family in Mississippi.

    His brutal death prompted Mamie to launch the Civil Rights Movement as we know it today.

    Joe, who will also appear in the upcoming Space Jam revamp, A New Legacy, won the role of Till following a nationwide search to find a young African-American actor who could embody the tragic character.

    Adrienne Warren will play Till's mother and Niecy Nash co-stars as Alma, the boy's grandmother.

    Women of the Movement is inspired by Devery S. Anderson's book Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement.

    Will Smith is in a forgiving mood. The A-list actor forgave actress Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv on NBC's "Fresh Prince of Bel Air."

    Smith and Hubert famously clashed on the set of the series. She was fired for refusing to get along with Smith, and replaced by actress Daphne Maxwell-Reid.

    Smith buried the hatchet and forgave Hubert, weeks after forgiving his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for cheating on him with singer August Alsina.

    The entire cast of 'Fresh Prince' returned for the 30th anniversary reunion show except for the late James Avery, who played Uncle Phil.

    The original cast includes Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, and Tatyana Ali.

    Smith posted photos from the reunion show on his Instagram account. He captioned one image:

    "Today is exactly 30 YEARS since The @FreshPrince of Bel-Air debuted! So we're doin' something for y'all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin' soon to @HBOmax! RIP James. #FreshPrince30th".

    A Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot drama is in the works. The original NBC television series (1990-1996) was a situational comedy starring Will Smith as a street smart kid from Philly who is shipped to stay with his uncle's family in Beverly Hills.

    The new drama series, Bel-Air, is based on Morgan Cooper's viral YouTube trailer. The trailer, with updates from the original series producers Will Smith, Benny Medina and Quincy Jones, is currently being shopped to livestream networks, including HBO Max and Netflix.

    Bel-Air is described as a dramatic spin on the original comedy TV series that launched Will Smith's career as an actor.

    Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the new Bel-Air series has been in the works for more than a year after the 4-minute clip went viral in March 2019.

    Cooper, a self-described Fresh Prince super-fan, created and directed the trailer that reimagines the series as a drama.

    He will co-write the script, direct and be credited as a co-executive producer, according to THR.

    A loyal reader uncovered an old post that appears to validate August Alsina's statement that A-list actor Will Smith gave him permission to pursue his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, 4 years ago.

    In an article first published on Dailymail.com in 2005, Will said he and his wife had reached an agreement to preserve their marriage while satisfying their needs at the same time.

    The couple reportedly gave each other permission to sleep with other partners, as long as they didn't go behind the other spouse's back.

    Will said to get your wife's permission first before you cheat. He added that desiring another partner is only natural.

    "Our perspective is, you don't avoid what's natural," he said in 2005.

    "You're going to be attracted to people. In our marriage vows, we didn't say forsaking all others".

    "The vow that we made was that you will never hear that I did something after the fact. If it came down to it, then one can say to the other, 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. I'm not going to if you don't approve of it - but please approve of it'."

    The father of three said, even though he and Jada saw other people, he never fell out of love with her.

    "I don't let a day go past that Jada doesn't feel like the Queen of the World," Will said.

    "I make sure every single day that she knows how I feel about her."
