Director Ang Lee has proven on multiple occasions that he is one of the most ambitious filmmakers of his time, with his latest film, Gemini Man, being yet another addition to his long list of features that push cinematic technology forward in unexpected ways. Not only did Lee deliver audiences an experience in a higher frame rate than typical movies, adding a unique look to all of the action unfolding, but the film featured Will Smith playing dual roles of the same character at different ages, who have collided with one another. Check out the featurette above chronicling the filming process and grab Gemini Man on Digital HD on December 23rd and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on January 14, 2020.
