Gunpowder Milkshake brings three generations of assassins together in one explosive night. Starring Lena Headey and Karen Gillan as a mother-daughter assassin duo, the trailer gives us a lot of John Wick feels, with the promise of another epic action film releasing on Netflix in July.
From the trailer, Gillan plays Sam, and she enters a library that also serves as the headquarters of their operations for female assassins. Sam loading up on ammo to get a new job done. The new job, however, doesn’t go as planned when Sam takes pity on eight-year-old Emily (Chloe Coleman), forcing the assassin to defend the child against her deadly employer. To survive, Sam needs to reach out to her mother, Scarlet (Headey), the founder of a sisterhood of assassins.
Read Gunpowder Milkshake’s synopsis below:
“Sam 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.”
Directed by Navot Papushado from a script he co-wrote with Ehud Lavski, Gunpowder Milkshake will arrive Netflix July 14, also getting to theaters internationally this Summer.
