Will Smith fans are looking forward to his stint in King Richard. In the upcoming Warner Bros. movie, the beloved star will take on the role of Richard Williams, the father, and coach for Venus and Serena Williams. Both of those women are international tennis stars, but some viewers were still surprised by their story. The elder Williams was a complicated figure who wanted better for his girls in Compton but also had some intense coaching methods to help them achieve those dreams. Smith is no stranger to a dramatic turn on occasion. His portrayal of Muhammad Ali is one of the most celebrated roles of his illustrious career. Pursuit of Happyness was another one of those emotional gut punches from his catalog. A lot of people are expecting some real drama with this release as well. Check out the trailer down below:

🥺 They literally paved the way for sooo many of us young black female athletes. Seeing these black girls with beads/braids and big smiles made success seem possible. It made it feel tangible when you felt like the whole world was saying no. @Venuseswilliams @serenawilliams 🙏🏾 https://t.co/rK41NyKcA7— Raven HULK Saunders (@GiveMe1Shot) July 28, 2021
