This time around, the trailer for director Reinaldo Marcus Green’s biopic features a new song from Beyoncé titled “Be Alive.” Venus and Serena both appear alongside Will to introduce the latest glimpse, which follows the July-released inaugural look at the Zach Baylin-written drama.
Catch the latest trailer up top. King Richard arrives Nov. 19 in theaters and on HBO Max.
We first learned of the new Beyoncé track back in September thanks to the Los Angeles Times, which said the track plays during the film’s closing credits. Per that same report, the song was written by Beyoncé and DIXSON. As fans know, this isn’t the first time the worlds of Serena and Beyoncé have been brought together in the name of art.
Joining Smith in the biopic’s cast are Saniyya Sidney as Venus Williams, Demi Singleton as Serena Williams, Aunjanue Ellis as Oracene “Brandy” Price, and Jon Bernthal as Rick Macci. Early reviews, including from the film’s Telluride Film Festival premiere in September, have been particularly glowing for Smith’s performance as father and coach Richard Williams.
Also arriving next month is Will, a new autobiography penned by the actor alongside Mark Manson. Per Smith, putting the book together marked a “labor of love” that last two years.
