The trailer shows us the budding relationship between two young men played by Banks Repeta and Jaylin Webb. One of them was white and the other was black at a time when racial tensions were extremely high, and were going on openly in America. We have a bit of a story here, with these boys having to forcibly break up this friendship due to rampant racism of the day. But really, this seems like a piece of a life drama that uses the period setting as a way to tackle very prominent issues.
It looked like an absolute introduction to the composite cast, with Hopkins and Hathaway making the most of every second of screen time, while Repeta and Webb looked as mature as the film’s breakout stars. . Jeremy Strong also shows off as his normal self (which means very well), all under the direction of Gray, who is bringing us his first feature since “Ad Astra. “
Focus doesn’t give us much of a synopsis of the film, with the studio saying the film is “a deeply personal story about the strength of family, the complexities of friendship, and the pursuit of the American Dream.” of generation”. If that doesn’t sound like Oscar bait to me, I don’t know what is. But, it’s clear that Oscar bait isn’t always bad. Usually, it makes for a great movie with an unfortunate description attached to it.
Gray wrote the script in addition to directing duties. Anthony Katagas, Marc Butan and Rodrigo Teixeira are producing, with Alan Terpins, Marco Tulio Kehdi, Francisco Civita, Beto Gauss, Gustavo Debs and Lourenco Sant’Anna serving as executive producers.
“Armageddon Time” will open in select theaters on October 28, 2022, with a follow-up expansion.
