'Gemini Man' After Credits: Is There an End Credits Scene After Will Smith Movie?

Will Smith is back in movie theaters this weekend, starring in Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's highly anticipated action thriller Gemini Man.

Gemini Man features Smith as aging government hitman Henry Brogan, who, it turns out, has a hit out on him. The twist? The assassin after Brogan is a younger clone of himself.

Gemini Man is director Ang Lee's first big action feature since 2003's Hulk. Since that movie, however, Lee has bagged not one, but two best director Oscars for Brokeback Mountain and Life of Pi.

With a 117-minute run time, Gemini Man is nearly two hours long. So, if you're planning to see the movie this weekend you might be asking yourself: Should I stay through the credits? We've got the answer for you.

Warning: Potential Gemini Man spoilers ahead.

Does Gemini Man have a post-credits scene?

There is no end credits scene attached to Gemini Man, so if you need to rush to the bathroom, you're safe.

The story behind Gemini Man

Gemini Man has been in development for over 20 years before finally making it onto our screens this October.

The film was written by David Benioff, one of the co-creators of a little show called Game of Thrones, Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) and Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After).

Gemini Man was originally conceived at Disney in 1997 with the late Tony Scott set to direct. Over the years, other directors attached to the film have included Curtis Hanson and Joe Carnahan. In fact, Carnahan made a sizzle reel featuring Clint Eastwood in the main role as a concept for the film.

Before Smith, it's reported that numerous A-list actors had been considered to play what would eventually become the Henry Brogan character. Names included Eastwood, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nicolas Cage and Sylvester Stallone.

Finally, the movie began gaining steam in 2016 when production company Skydance bought the rights from Disney and teamed with Paramount Pictures to make it. Lee and Smith signed in 2017.

Gemini Man reviews

Despite Lee being a two-time Oscar winner, and Smith picking up praise for playing the genie in Aladdin earlier this year, critics are not loving Gemini Man.

The sci-fi thriller is rated 29 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes at press time.

"The plot makes no sense, the dreary script is dead on arrival, and Smith is just as blank and lost at 23 as he is at 51," said the Observer's Rex Reed.

Rolling Stone's Peter Travers said "this high-tech downgrade for the great Ang Lee, all the digital fx it takes for Will Smith to mix it up with a Fresh Prince version of himself does not compensate for a dull plot, achingly familiar characters and dialogue that's no fun at all."

Gemini Man is in theaters now.
