If the information of the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel has you raring to observe Charlize Theron kick ass and take names, then you definitely’re in luck, as The Old Guard, through which she performs an immortal mercenary named Andromache of Scythia, is on its manner.
Based on Greg Rucka’s comedian e book and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Beyond the Lights), the movie facilities on a gaggle of equally unkillable mercenaries rounded up by Andromache (or Andy, as she’s now referred to as) who, within the 21st century, uncover that protecting their secret protected is tougher than they’d thought. As they battle towards a company that seeks to benefit from their powers, they arrive to recruit Nile (KiKi Layne) as the most recent member of the crew.
The trailer exhibits simply how immortal they’re, because the crew survives a rain of gunfire, and a wound on Nile’s arm shortly heals. Despite shut name after shut name, it appears as if Andy’s description of the 5 of them as an “army” isn’t truly that far off the mark.
Marwan Kenzari, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Luca Marinelli star as the remainder of Andy’s crew, with Chiwetel Ejiofor and Harry Melling amongst these pursuing them.
The Old Guard will debut on Netflix on July 10.
