The fans look impressed after the new trailer of Mr. & Mrs. Smith series dropped.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt gave a memorable performance to make 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith iconic.
As the new series was announced with a new cast and story, the fans were skeptical about it.
However, the recent trailer of the new Donald Glover series makes the fans hopeful about the Prime Video series.
The success of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith drove Prime Video to develop a remake series of the same after so many years. The upcoming series stars Donald Glover and Maya Erskine in the lead instead of the iconic duo of Brangelina. The new cast undoubtedly raised a lot of criticism and skepticism among fans regarding the series. However, it seems the new trailer has forced the audience to change their views.

Doug Liman’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith is considered one of the most iconic flicks featuring a couple in a failing marriage who realize they are assassins of rival agencies and are assigned to kill each other. The intriguing premise, accompanied by electrifying chemistry, led the fans to make it one of the most successful films in the genre.
How does the new Mr. & Mrs. Smith differ from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s classic?

It was already anticipated that the new Mr. & Mrs. Smith would raise a lot of controversy and skepticism, given that the 2005 classic was an iconic film. Surprisingly, the upcoming flick has played an intelligent move and took a different take instead of trying to be another iteration of the same old story.
While the classic tale focuses on a couple in a boring marriage, discovering they are assassins, the new story centers around two spies tied together to mimic a happy couple. This journey kindles romance between the two. It is a very different take on John and Jane Smith than what we saw between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
It was clever for the makers to realize the difficulties in rekindling the same chemistry between Donald Glover and Maya Erskine that we have seen between Brangelina. Initially, Phoebe Waller-Bridge was roped in for the female lead. Due to some creative differences, she moved out, and we got a different Jane Smith.
The plans have seemed to work for the makers as the excitement around the Mr. & Mrs. Smith remake series is high. Fans have found the trailers more appealing and better than they expected. Glover and Erskine’s excellence in acting also ensures that the series can be a successful remake of the unforgettable blockbuster.
