You know what they say. The family that kills together… Well, maybe not. But the women in Gunpowder Milkshake sure make it seem fun.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Check out the star-studded trailer for the Netflix film below:
Gunpowder Milkshake stars Karen Gillan as Sam, an assassin raised by the crime syndicate The Firm. She ends up crossing the wrong guys to save a young girl’s life, and gets drawn into a deadly chase. Sam recruits the help of her estranged mother (Lena Headey) to help her take down the bad guys.
Joining their team? The Librarians, aka Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, and Michelle Yeoh. (Thus named due to the fact that they’re running a secret arms operation out of a library, naturally.)
The trailer for Gunpowder Milkshake has plenty of gun-slinging action and more than a few laughs. The visual style is distinctive, and overall this one looks like a lot of fun.
Here’s the full description from Netflix:
Sam (Gillan) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (Headey), an elite assassin, was forced to abandon her. Sam was raised by The Firm, the ruthless crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now, 15 years later, Sam has followed in her mother’s footsteps and grown into a fierce hit-woman. She uses her “talents” to clean up The Firm’s most dangerous messes. She’s as efficient as she is loyal.
But when a high-risk job goes wrong, Sam must choose between serving The Firm and protecting the life of an innocent 8-year-old girl – Emily (Chloe Coleman). With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates: The Librarians (Bassett, Yeoh, and Gugino).
These three generations of women must now learn to trust each other, stand up to The Firm and their army of henchmen, and raise hell against those who could take everything from them.
Gunpowder Milkshake premieres on Netflix July 14.
