Apple Canceled 'The Banker' Premiere at AFI Fest 2019 for This Reason

The reason behind Apple’s decision cancel the premiere of The Banker has been revealed.

The upcoming movie starring Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie was set to premiere during closing night of the 2019 AFI Fest, but was canceled on Wednesday (November 20) amid sexual abuse claims against the real-life subject’s son.

Bernard Garrett Jr.‘s half sisters recently shared with Apple that he allegedly sexually molested them over the course of several years when he was a young man living in their home, THR reports.

The sisters, Cynthia and Sheila, made the claim in connection with “separate allegations that the timeline of the film was tweaked in order to leave the girls and their mother out of the story and instead feature Bernard Garrett Sr.’s first wife, even though he had already divorced her by the time of some of the events depicted in the film.”

Apple has declined to comment on the specifics of the sisters’ claims, but released a statement saying, “We purchased The Banker earlier this year as we were moved by the film’s entertaining and educational story about social change and financial literacy. Last week some concerns surrounding the film were brought to our attention. We, along with the filmmakers, need some time to look into these matters and determine the best next steps.”

The film follows Bernard Garrett, a black man, who builds a small financial empire in the 50s and 60s by using a white man as the face of the business.

Bernard later testified before a Senate committee and was sent to prison and is considered instrumental in civil rights legislation involving the banking industry.

The Banker is set for a theatrical release on December 6th before heading to Apple TV+.

Samuel L. Jackson & Anthony Mackie Team Up in 'The Banker' Trailer - Watch!

Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie take on the system in the trailer for their new movie The Banker!

The actors, ages 70 and 41, respectively, join forces in the new visual, released by Apple TV+ on Monday (November 4).

The Banker, based on a true story, follows “revolutionary businessmen Bernard Garrett (Anthony Mackie) and Joe Morris (Samuel L. Jackson), who devise an audacious and risky plan to take on the racially oppressive establishment of the 1960s by helping other African Americans pursue the American dream.”

The synopsis continues, “Along with Garrett’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), they train a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire – while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur. Their success ultimately draws the attention of the federal government, which threatens everything the four have built.”

The drama, directed by George Nolfi, also stars Jessie T. Usher and Colm Meaney.

Kristen Stewart & Anthony Mackie Talk About Their Love for Chris Evans at TIFF

Kristen Stewart and Anthony Mackie sit down for an interview at the IMDb Studio on Saturday morning (September 7) at Bisha Hotel & Residences in Toronto, Canada.

The Seberg co-stars were joined by director Benedict Andrews for an interview with Dave Karger. The studio at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival was presented by Intuit: QuickBooks Canada.

During the interview, both stars opened up about their love for Chris Evans when Anthony was asked about working on The Falcon & Winter Soldier without his Captain America co-star.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a thousand times. Chris is one of my closest friends and when the three of us [including Sebastian Stan] get together, it’s hell and anarchy. Hopefully we’ll be able to have him around to cause some trouble on set,” Anthony said.

Kristen chimed in and said, “I love him as well!”
