On Netflix it seems that they have taken a liking to making action movies based on comics perhaps not too well known by the general public. They recently wiped out ‘Tyler Rake’ and now the platform has just released the trailer for ‘The Old Guard’ , a curious superhero movie.
Charlize Theron leads this adaptation of the comic by Leandro Fernández de Moratín and Greg Rucka . In it, she plays the leader of a group of immortal mercenaries who have protected humanity throughout history but who now will have to face her greatest challenge: a new immortal being with extraordinary abilities.
Rucka himself, also creator of the comics that gave rise to ‘Whiteout’ or the television ‘Stumptown’ . In those cases he did not personally deal with the script, so it will be necessary to see if he also has talent in this field. Gina Prince-Bythewood – ‘The secret life of bees’ – is responsible for materializing it in images.
Along with Theron we can also see KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor . An interesting cast for what promises to be Netflix’s great cinematic hobby for this summer of 2020.
‘The Old Guard’ will premiere on Netflix on July 10.
