The Old Guard–Charlize Theron taps Assassin’s Creed vibe in second trailer

Your next shelter-at-home action movie has a second trailer this week.  It’s again coming to Netflix, the one venue reliably delivering movies this year with the pandemic still spiking at new highs across the country.  In The Old Guard, 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.  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.

The Old Guard is based on the Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernández comic book of the same name, and 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 second 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.
