Netflix released new images of the badass characters from their upcoming action film, Gunpowder Milkshake. The images are of the film’s stars Karen Gillan, Lena Heady, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh, and Angela Bassett — all holding dangerous weapons of their choice.
In the film, which comes out on July 14 on Netflix, Gillan plays Sam, a skilled assassin who works for The Firm, a ruthless crime syndicate, after her mother (Heady) abandoned her 15 years earlier. After she fails her mission by saving a little girl, The Firm places a target on her back. Sam must find her mother and their lethal associates, The Librarians (Yeoh, Bassett, Gugino), in order to take down the people after her.
Check out the characters 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. She uses her “talents” to clean up The Firm’s most dangerous messes. She’s as efficient as she is loyal.
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.
