“The Banker” Tells the Story of One of the First African American Banks

Apple is not taking its foot off the gas as they continue to release new content for its new streaming service, TV+. Yesterday, they released the trailer for its new movie The Banker, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, and Nia Long.

The Banker is based on a true story of Bernard Garr (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson) who are entrepreneurs who team up on a plan to create a real estate and finance empire back in the 50’s and 60’s with the intent to help other African Americans live their dream.

The Banker will have a limited theater run starting on December 6th and then will be available to be streamed in January.
