Netflix has dropped the first-look trailer for Charlize Theron’s new action film The Old Guard, which sees her lead a group of immortal warriors.
Forever is harder than it looks. 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. Coming to Netflix on July 10.
Gina Prince-Bythewood is directing the comic book adaptation, who had been previously attached to direct Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff Silver & Black before it was cancelled and has recently worked on Marvel Television series Cloak & Dagger.
Other actors part of the cast include Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthias Schoenaerts, Kiki Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Harry Melling, and Luca Marinelli.
The Old Guard is set to be released on July 10th on Netflix.
