STXfilms and StudioCanal have released first-look images from their new assassin thriller GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE. “Empire” was the first to snag images from the Karen Gillan-fronted female assassin ensemble.
GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE is directed by Navot Papushudo from a script by Ehud Lavski. The film follows three generations of female assassins who, over the course of a single night, fight to stop a cycle of violence. Leading the charge is Sam (Gillan), who 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. Things become complicated when 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. The film also stars Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, Paul Giamatti, Michelle Yeoh, and Ralph Ineson. You can check out the first-look images below:
