Sony Pictures have released the official trailer for their upcoming action thriller Proud Mary starring Taraji P. Henson.
Taraji P. Henson will be playing a hit woman whose life is turned completely around when she meets a young boy who awakens in her a maternal instinct she never knew she had.
I was intrigued by the project when it round off its cast, but I’m not too sure if this trailer would encourage casual film viewers to check the film out on the big screen. I get the idea of editing the ‘beat’ of the action to Tina Turner’s ‘Proud Mary’, but personally for me I don’t think it worked. The film is going to unfortunately be compared to Atomic Blonde by the time it comes out next year, but I’m still looking forward to checking it out.
Proud Mary also stars Billy Brown, Danny Glover, Jahi Di’Allo Winston, Rade Serbedzija, Margaret Avery, Xander Berkeley and Neal McDonough and is scheduled for cinematic release on the 26th January 2018.
