The trailer for James Gray’s “Armageddon Time”, starring Anthony Hopkins, Anne Hathaway, and more, is here.

Hopkins’ onscreen grandson Paul Graff, played by Banks Repeta, is told off for hanging out with his Black best friend Johnny Crocker in the newly-released trailer.

Hopkins’ Aaron Graff then talks about his own Jewish heritage in the clip, recalling how his mother had to move to the U.S. otherwise she’d get killed.

He asks his grandson when the youngster says he didn’t say anything to the bullies, “You think that’s smart?”

“Next time those schmucks say anything bad, you’re going to say something,” Hopkins tells his grandson in the teaser, adding: “You’re going to be a mensch, okay?”
