Apple's "The Banker" gets a new YouTube trailer ahead of its December 6 theatrical release.

The two and a half minute long trailer highlights clips from the Apple Original Film. "The Banker" has been chosen to close out Hollywood's American Film Institute Festival on November 21.

"The Banker" follows two African American entrepreneurs working to overcome the racial limitations of the 1960s. Two business men, played by Jackson and Mackie, quietly try to provide housing loans to the African American community in Jim Crow Texas.

The film is based off of the true story of two African American businessmen who hired a working-class white man to pretend to be the head of their business empire. At the same time, the pair posed as a janitor and chauffeur.

The film hosts big name celebrities such as Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, and Nicholas Hoult. The film is directed by George Nolfi ("The Adjustment Bureau"), and is produced by Joe Viertel.

It is written by Niceole Levy, George Nolfi, David Lewis Smith and Stan Younger, and based off a story written by Brad Kane.

"The Banker" will premiere in theaters on December 6 before later releasing to Apple TV+. Its release at the AFI festival will qualify it for 2019 awards.
