On Tuesday, Netflix dropped the official trailer for the upcoming Gunpowder Milkshake film. Gunpowder Milkshake tells the story of Sam (Karen Gillan), a hired assassin who goes against her orders after refusing to kill a young girl named Emily (Chloe Coleman). The full synopsis is below.
“Sam (Karen Gillan) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (Lena 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. 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 (Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett and Carla 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.”
The official trailer for Gunpowder Milkshake can be seen below:
This film is obviously action-packed, reminiscent of peak moments from the Mission: Impossible and Jason Bourne franchises. Gillan, Bassett, and Headey all hold their own in fantastic fight scenes peppered with dry wit commentary, giving the film a Charlie’s Angels vibe (the 2000 version, at least). With a star-studded cast and a sequel already in the works, this could be the female fronted action movie franchise we’ve been waiting so long for. Gunpowder Milkshake premieres on Netflix on July 14, 2021.
