Who knew audiences would be more excited about the next Netflix movie than whatever is coming to theaters? Shelter at home is changing a lot of things, but one thing for certain is Netflix can hardly fill the ongoing demand this year for the next theatrical quality movie release. Charlize Theron headlines what looks like Atomic Blonde meets Assassin’s Creed, with a pinch of Aeon Flux, Mad Max: Fury Road, 6 Underground, and Extraction in her next action movie, The Old Guard. Consistently building on her last action hero performance to create the next, best action heroine, Theron’s new film is a mash-up of action and fantasy.
It seems hardly any comic book is left without a movie adaptation these days and The Old Guard is no different. Based on the Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernández comic book of the same name, it co-stars KiKi Layne (Coming 2 America), Matthias Schoenaerts (Far from the Madding Crowd), Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express), Luca Marinelli (Trust), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange).
Here is the first trailer for The Old Guard:
Look for The Old Guard coming directly to Netflix, July 10, 2020. While you’re waiting, pick up back copies of The Old Guard comic book series from Elite Comics and add a new trade edition coming in June to your pull list. Or order it here at Amazon.
