Will Smith plays the father of tennis icons Venus and Serena Williams in new film King Richard.

The film is based on the true story of the Williams sisters' rise to stardom, told from the perspective of their father Richard.

King Richard shows an "undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever", according to Warner Bros.

The film also features Aunjanue Ellis as the girl's mother, with Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton playing Venus and Serena respectively.
