Will Smith Is Transformed Into A 23-Year-Old In New Movie And It's Freaky

New clips from Will Smith's upcoming movie, Gemini Man were just released and, well, our jaws are still on the floor.

In the film, the actor plays both a 50-year-old and a 23-year-old.

Before you think "that can't be done," just check out these impressive digital effects.

Most of us grew up watching Will Smith from a young age.


He started on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air when he was just 22-years-old.

Now, it's no secret that Will has aged very well.


Maybe it's genetics, maybe it's the magic of Hollywood.

Either way, Will does not look 50-years-old.

Anyway, his career has yet to slow down.

Did you catch him in his latest movie? A little flick you might know by the name of Aladdin?

After that, it took him literally no time to hit the big screen again!

This time, with a new movie called Gemini Man.

The premise is sort of like "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" with two deadly assassins chasing after each other.

Only this time, the assassins are the same person, spanned across different decades.

The film is directed by Ang Lee.

If you don't know much about Lee, you should probably get to know him.

He's the man behind the beauty digital effects in movies like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Life of Pi".

So, yeah, he's pretty good.

He's going to be making film history with his new film, "Gemini Man."

He's making Will Smith's younger character completely digitalized!

This is completely unlike any other film where the actors are just de-aged.

Examples of this include Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Robert Downey Junior in Captain America: Civil War.

In the behind-the-scenes trailer for the film, Smith said that he's been blown away by the experience.

"This technology is going to change how movies are made, and how movies are seen."

His many years of acting has prepared the actor for this unique role.

It's not easy to play both a 50-year-old and a 23-year-old!

Take a look at 23-year-old Will!

The hard work has clearly been worth it as the results are insane! Wow, just wow.

Seeing Will in his twenties seriously transcends us back to Will's Fresh Prince days.

I almost half-expected the show's theme song to start playing!

"You're looking at Will who's looking at himself," says producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

"That's a phenomal experience for an audience."

The amount of hard work and detail put into his digital creation has so many people floored.

And in complete disbelief.

Honestly, this movie might be hard to follow, considering that 23-year-old Will doesn't look that far off from 50-year-old Will.

Technology is an incredible thing, isn't it?

We can't even imagine what this would have been like for Will, trying to act with himself.

The man has talent, though, and we're sure he pulled it off.

It was reported that Will was told to "act less good" when playing his younger self.

I'm sure that's every Hollywood actor's dream and the highest of compliments.

Ang Lee joked that the digitization of the young Will cost twice as much as they paid the real Will for the role.

And I believe it, tbh.

Since Will Smith looks young enough as it is, some people thought it was just regular Will the whole time.

Honestly, SAME.

The "Aladdin" actor has been having fun sharing fans' reactions.

"Wtf did you make that video 30 years ago? Incredulous if you did," said another fan.

Now the question is: which version of Will Smith will you root for?

Gemini Man hits theatres October 11!
