Sony dropped a new trailer this morning for an upcoming action film starring Taraji P. Henson called Proud Mary. The film seems to be in line with other recent and upcoming releases that have featured major Hollywood actresses in leading action roles such as Atomic Blonde staring Charlize Theron and the anime adaptation Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson. Based on the trailer below, the movie looks like it’s going to be pretty kick ass and should help widen Taraji’s fan base, which is not a bad thing at all. She’s an amazing actress who is definitely seeing a lot more career growth lately with the success of her TV show Empire, and in movies such as Hidden Figures.
Here’s the official Synopsis for Proud Mary, check out the trailer below and be sure to catch the film when it hits theatres January 12th!
Taraji P. Henson is Mary, a hit woman working for an organized crime family in Boston, whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.
