The first trailer for Elizabeth Banks' new take on Charlie's Angels
(which will actually serve as a follow-up to the previous movies and the classic TV series) was released a few weeks back, and Sony has followed it up with some new motion posters featuring the action adventure's leads.
This new trio of ass-kicking heroines consists of Naoimi Scott (Aladdin, Power Rangers
), Ella Balinska (A Modern Tale)
and Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Snow White and The Huntsman
), who will play Elena Houghlin, Jane Kano and Sabina Wilson, respectively.

The New Team
Director Elizabeth Banks, pictured here with her new trio of ass-kicking heroines.
“It was important to me to make a movie about women working together and supporting each other, and not make a movie about their romantic entanglements or their mother they don’t call enough,”
says the actress-turned filmmaker. “When I’m at work, I don’t talk about those things. I get on with my job. It felt important to do that for the Angels, to treat them with the respect their skill set demands.”
Stewart's character is named Sabina Wilson, and is described as "the hard-partying, highly skilled wild card" of the team.
Here, she goes undercover at a Turkish derby, where the team has been tailing a target until “chaos ensues."
Jane and Langston
Ella Balinska plays Jane Kano, the "ex-MI6 muscle of the group."
She's pictured here with a mysterious character named Langston, who will be played by To All the Boys I've Loved Before
actor - and quite possibly our new He-Man - Noah Centineo.
Aladdin’s Naomi Scott plays Elena Houghlin, an "MIT-trained scientist who serves as the heart of the movie.”
“I wanted somebody who I felt the audience wants to root for,”
Banks says of casting her Power Rangers co-star in the pivotal role. “She’s getting to be this Everywoman who’s also very fun and very funny.”
Elizabeth Banks On Set
Though this isn't Elizabeth Banks' first big gig behind the camera (she also helmed Pitch Perfect 2
), it is the first Charlie's Angels
installment to be directed by a woman.
"It’s a really exciting moment for female-driven films,”
she says, citing Wonder Woman
and Captain Marvel
as recent examples of box-office successes. “Audiences are really looking for those aspirational stories about real and relatable characters, and I think the women in my movie are definitely real and relatable, but most importantly, I think they’re really fun.”

Sabina And Bosley
In addition to directing, Banks will also play Bosley... although she won't be the only character with that name.
“‘Bosley’ is now a rank in the organization, like lieutenants,”
she says. “All of the Angels have been played by different women and have had different names, but the Bosley character was always named Bosley no matter who played him. We thought, ‘Well, that must mean it’s more than a name.’”
