There is no shortage of gritty actioners from Hollywood. The Gunpowder Milkshake trailer is proof of that. The new action film sees Karen Gillan taking a page out of John Wick, portraying a trained killer who has to do beat up the bad guys and do really nasty things.
As you would see in the Gunpowder Milkshake trailer below, Gillan is alone on the fun. The film also stars Lena Headey, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, and Michelle Yeoh. Every film does need a baddie though and Paul Giamatti has that honour playing the main antagonist in this film.
Gunpowder Milkshake tells the story of Sam, who was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet, 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. 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.
With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates, The Librarians. 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.
Navot Papushado directs Gunpowder Milkshake. The film will be released sometime in mid-July.
