"Just because we keep living doesn't mean we stop earning." Netflix has debuted a second official trailer for The Old Guard, an epic action fantasy movie from director Gina Prince-Bythewood, based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Greg Rucka. The first trailer arrived a few months back, this new one is a reminder that this movie launches on Netflix soon. A covert team of immortal mercenaries are suddenly exposed and must now fight to keep their identity a secret as an unexpected new member is discovered. A "gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks." Starring Charlize Theron as "Andy", aka Andromache of Scythia, with KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Van Veronica Ngo, plus Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Hard to tell from these trailers if this is going to be any good, but I'm hopeful. Maybe it'll have some slick action at least.
Here's the second official trailer for Gina Prince-Bythewood's The Old Guard, from Netflix's YouTube:
Forever is harder than it looks.
