Watch: Salma Hayek is Pretty Good with Guns in US 'Everly' Trailer
Since Liam Neeson didn't really do much in the vein of quality ass-kicking earlier this month, maybe Salma Hayek has what it takes to step up to the plate with the action thriller Everly. In the film, Hayek plays a woman who faces down assassins sent by her ex, who also just happens to be a mob boss, while holed up in her apartment. In this first US trailer, it feels like The Raid meets Kill Bill, with plenty of action to go around. Frankly, I'm just excited to see an actress like Hayek in this role instead of a leading man. This could open up some new doors for the actress if it turns out to be a hit, which we hope it will be. Watch!
Here's the first US trailer for Joe Lynch's Everly, originally from Apple:
Everly is directed by Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom) and written by first-time scribe Yale Hannon. It’s Christmas time, but all is not well in the world of Everly (Salma Hayek). A call girl by trade, Everly has turned against her gangster boss Taiko (Hiroyuki Watanabe) and become a police informant. In response, Taiko has put out a hit on Everly and her family. Soon, every criminal in town wants to cash in. Everly’s survival instincts quickly kick in as she matches wits and firepower with Taiko and a seemingly endless stream of killers. Radius-TWC releases the film on iTunes January 23rd and in theaters February 27th.
