Netflix just dropped a new trailer for their Charlize Theron action flick about a team of immortal soldiers, The Old Guard. The story focuses on their recruitment of the newest member of the team and the shadowy organization who wants to capture them and figure out their secret to never-ending life.
Netflix has set a pretty high bar for entertaining action flix lately between Six Underground and Extraction. The Old Guard looks like it could be a lot of fun. Let’s hope Theron and her cast of Kiki Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Van Veronica Ngo, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Chiwetel Ejiofor are able to come through with something great when the movie hits the streaming network on July 10th.
Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (LOVE & BASKETBALL, BEYOND THE LIGHTS), THE OLD GUARD is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.
