Charlie’s Angels is back for a modern reboot based on the original ’70s TV show about fearless, chameleon-like female undercover agents. In the trailer for Sony’s new movie, out this November, the Angels sport a lot of fun, campy costumes and wigs. But more than that, the movie, which stars out A-lister Kristen Stewart, is about kicking ass and solving crimes while having your best girls' backs.
Elizabeth Banks helms the film as well as taking on the role of Bosley, a part that has previously been played by men. Stewart stars as the tough-talking Sabina, Aladdin’s Naomi Scott as the gun-wielding Elena, and Ella Balinska as the wide-eyed newcomer and tech genius Jane.
In a recent interview, Stewart, who starred in the massive Twilight franchise early in her career, revealed that she was encouraged to remain closeted if she wanted to continue to make blockbusters.
"I have fully been told, 'If you just, like, do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie,'" Stewart said. "I don’t want to work with people like that."
As it turns out, Stewart doesn't need a superhero to kick ass. She's doing that with the Angels and in life.
