KING RICHARD – out May 19 on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K ULTRA HD
KING RICHARD is based on the true story of Richard Williams (Will Smith), father of legendary tennis players Venus (Saniyya Sidney) and Serena Williams (Demi Singleton).
With his unshakable ambition, but above all with his boundless love, Richard paves the way for his daughters to become world leaders in tennis. He has to overcome enormous obstacles every day, because Compton, California is not usually the place that produces tennis champions.
Richard bravely defends himself against the gangs who claim the local tennis court as their turf, tirelessly trains his girls in the finer points of a game he’s never played himself, and constantly fights against the age-old lines of race and class for a fair chance .
Because he firmly believes that his daughters are destined for great things.
