Apple Releases New Trailer for Original Film 'The Banker' With Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson

Apple today released a trailer for its upcoming film "The Banker," starring Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Nia Long, and Nicholas Hoult.


The film is based on a true story about Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who devise a plan to help African Americans get access to real estate deals and bank loans during the 1960s.

The film will debut in theaters on December 6, a few weeks before it is available to stream on Apple TV+ sometime in January. It will be the third Apple Original movie to follow this theatrical release schedule, following "The Elephant Queen" in October and "Hala" in November.

‌Apple TV+‌ launched three days ago on Friday, November 1, with a focus on TV shows like "Dickinson," "The Morning Show," "See," and "For All Mankind." The only film available to stream as of now is "The Elephant Queen."

I get Apple TV+ free with my Apple Music Student Membership, and I won't even watch it...for free. Nothing they offer interests me. Another classic blunder from team Cook.
Because it’s all about you… lots of people have watched and enjoyed every one of the shows Apple put up at the weekend. To be honest I think they have a pretty good product on their hands, and the signs are that they’ve got lots of great stuff in the wings.

But for some people they’ll never be happy because they genuinely get their kicks complaining about Apple. Which, I suppose, is great for them, because they can do that for free!


The dramas are okay, but give us sci-fi or something exciting.
For All Mankind IS sci-fi.

Looks good. Ol’ Samuel L. is always good.
What are you talking about???
He’s known as an actor that never says no to any role.
As such, a LOT of his movies are absolute garbage. Like 4/10 type of horrendous trash. Unicorn Store? The Spirit? Formula 51?
Sorry, but “good ol, Samuel L.” being in a movie is decidedly NOT any indication of the quality.
Not saying this movie isn’t going to be good... just the fact that a single good actor (that will play in ANYTHING) is in a move is probably not the best way to prejudge a film.

So there are now three classic blunders
- Getting involved in a land war in Asia
- Going against a Sicilian when death is on the line
- Apple not making something that interests Jobs 3:16?
