We’re counting down to the release of the exciting, action-packed thriller, The Protégé. And to celebrate, Lionsgate has a new clip for you all!
Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world’s most skilled contract killer. But when Moody — the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival — is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.
The clip teases the really fantastic father/daughter dynamic between Maggie Q and Samuel L. Jackson. No eye patches in this one though, folks. Just shared camaraderie over… plumbing. Check out the clip for yourselves here:
The Protégé hits theaters on August 20!
