SYNOPSIS: From Warner Bros. Pictures comes “King Richard,” starring two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Bad Boys for Life”), under the direction of Reinaldo Marcus Green (“Monsters and Men”). Armed with a clear vision and a brazen 78-page plan, Richard Williams is determined to write his daughters, Venus and Serena, into history.
