Being the grandson of a wealthy oil tycoon, who is an art collector, philanthropist, Republican party loyalist and the chief of Occidental Petroleum, is a predicament for someone who wanted to make it big on his own terms. Armie Hammer was always keen to step out of his great grandfather Armand Hammer. After spending a dreamlike childhood in the paradise on earth, ‘the Cayman Islands,’ Hammer started his Hollywood roundup.
However, his first major endeavor as an actor, George Miller’s proposed 2007 Justice League movie, sank without a trace before production, leaving him the tag, ‘the Batman to be’ actor. But his patience paid back when the breakout came with the Winklevoss twins in ‘The Social Network.’ Hammer’s dual portrayal of the twins against Mark Zuckerberg garnered critical acclaim and viewers praise alike. ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E’ and ‘The Lone Ranger,’ followed with lesser bombastic effects on his career.
From that point onward, there was a notable shift in his career trajectory as Hammer picked up more daring, auteur-driven projects. His intoxicating performance alongside Timothée Chalamet in the gay romance ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ earned him widespread acclaim. Hammer continued his success streak with ‘Sorry To Bother You’ and ‘On The Basis Of Sex.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Armie Hammer movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Armie Hammer films/tv shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020.
