Gunpowder Milkshake is a new action blast that appears to take the John Wick formula, remix it slightly, add a bit of humour and send it to screen. Cool!
It boasts a pretty kick-arse cast, too. Karen Gillan stars alongside Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino and Paul Giamatti.
The blurb machine has this to say: “Sam (Gillan) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (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 eight-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 (Yeoh, Bassett and 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.”
It looks like a whole bunch of fun, and is coming to Australian cinemas from July 15. Check it out:
