The first images for the upcoming Charlie’s Angels film have been revealed, giving us a look at Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska in the Elizabeth Banks-directed film.
The first look images come from EW, with the shot below showcasing the three protagonists apparently staking out on a hill. The rest of the images, which feature the actresses in individual scenes, Banks behind and in front of the camera, supporting actor Noah Centineo and more, can be found on EW.
The first look also comes with new details about the film, which isn’t a reboot or remake so much as it is a continuation of the original 1970s TV series and the 2000s films starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. The mysterious head of Charlie’s Angels, Charles Townsend, has grown his empire substantially. “If you were rich in 1976, you only got richer,” said Banks. “Charles Townsend is richer than ever, so he’s grown the business into a global spy agency.”
The film stars Stewart as Sabina Wilson, a partying, highly-skilled wild card, Balinska as Jane Kano, the group’s ex-MI6 muscle, and Scott as Elena Houghlin, an MIT-trained scientist. The film will take these Angels around the world, including Istanbul, Hamburg and Berlin, and focus on the group working together, with a group dynamic inspired by the Mission: Impossible films.
“It was important to me to make a movie about women working together and supporting each other, and not make a movie about their romantic entanglements or their mother they don’t call enough,” said Banks. “When I’m at work, I don’t talk about those things. I get on with my job. It felt important to do that for the Angels, to treat them with the respect their skill set demands.”
While many details surrounding Charlie’s Angels remain a mystery, we do know that Sir. Patrick Stewart has been cast as (at least one) Bosley, while the core cast of Angels was revealed in July 2018.
Charlie’s Angels hits theaters on November 15, 2019
