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.

Watch The Banker trailer now, and don’t miss it when it hits theaters on December 6 ahead of its premiere on Apple TV+ in January!

And while JJ’s own FBI analyst’s badge may clash with his dad’s trademark leather duster, there’s no denying family.
