THE OLD GUARD new trailer and 4 clips – Charlize Theron brings Greg Rucka’s comic to Netflix

The new Netflix movie THE OLD GUARD is actually based on the comic book series of the same name by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez. Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Van Veronica Ngo, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Chiwetel Ejiofor star in the small screen adaptation, which is also penned by Rucka, and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. The story follow a team of immortal assassins inducting a new member to assist them in their adventures. And of course, when you have that kind of power, people will inevitably want to steal it. I gotta say, the trailer below (and previous trailer) looks pretty great. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I do very much like the comic series, so this may be one to really watch for. Take a look below and see if you don’t agree.

Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (LOVE & BASKETBALL, BEYOND THE LIGHTS), THE OLD GUARD is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.


And here are four clips to give you an idea of what to expect. If this doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know what will:
