We’re in for a treat with this one! The gunpowder will fill the screen, the muzzle flashes will be blinding, and you’ll be asking your friends; who is shooting who? According to the trailer, that’s the type of movie Gunpowder Milkshake is shaping up to be. That means, we’ll be showered in bullets, blood and guts, which obviously results in over-the-top entertainment!
Who could’ve thought that John Wick movies would birth their own sub-genre of action films? I surely couldn’t. But, I’m really happy to see Karen Gillan go John Wick, and butcher everyone in her way! With the help of the mother, three librarians and a little girl, Sam (Karen Gillan) will be taking us on a bloody good rollercoaster ride! Enough chit-chat. Watch the Gunpowder Milkshake trailer now!
“Some baaad men are coming to hurt us. We have to go where it’s safe.” – Sam
Plot: At the age of 12, Sam (Karen Gillan) was abandoned by her mom Scarlet (Lena Headey), who was a top-tier assassin. Without her mother around, Sam was raised by The Firm, the one her mother worked for, and soon she was following Scarlet’s footsteps. She became a badass hitman, with jaw-dropping abilities, but she soon finds herself in a sticky situation. When a job goes wrong, Emily (Chloe Coleman) is caught in the midst of a showdown, and Sam decides to protect her. In turn, she’s got a target on her back, and the only way to survive is to find her long-lost mother, Scarlet. Now, it’s time to mix the ingredients for a gunpowder milkshake!
Gunpowder Milkshake is Navot Papushado’s creation, writing the film together with Ehud Lavski. While not exactly famous, Papushado shows a lot of promise, known for directing Rabies (2010) and Big Bad Wolves (2013). Thus, I’m not shocked that Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Angela Bassett and Carla Gugino signed on the dotted line. See these fantastic actors in Gunpowder Milkshake, slated to premiere on July 14, 2021.
