Based on the true story that will inspire the world and change the sport of tennis forever, King Richard follows the journey of Richard Williams, an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted and tenacious athletes of all time.

Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith stars as Richard, under the direction of Reinaldo Marcus Green (Monsters and Men).

Driven by a clear vision of their future and refusing to back away from unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons.

The profoundly moving film shows the power of family, perseverance and unwavering belief as a means to achieve the impossible and impact the world.

Co-starring Aunjanue Ellis (If Beale Street Could Talk), who plays the girls’ mum, Oracene “Brandi” Williams, Saniyya Sidney (Hidden Figures) as Venus Williams, Demi Singleton (Godfather of Harlem) as Serena Williams, with Tony Goldwyn (Scandal) as coach Paul Cohen and Jon Bernthal (The Many Saints of Newark, Ford v Ferrari) as coach Rick Macci.

The ensemble also includes Andy Bean (IT Chapter Two), Kevin Dunn (Veep) and Craig Tate (Greyhound).
