Netflix showcases the star power of Charlize Theron, Chitewel Ejiofor and Matthias Schoenaerts in globetrotting action thriller The Old Guard. Dropping on July 10th, the feature from female director Gina Prince-Bythewood sees a group of invincible mercenaries attempt to evade capture. The Old Guard is based on the graphic novel by Greg Rucka. Check the full synopsis below:
“Forever is harder than it looks. Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (Kiki Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (LOVE & BASKETBALL, BEYOND THE LIGHTS), THE OLD GUARD is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.”
With the success of Netflix’s Chris Hemsworth’s action vehicle Extraction, Netflix will also be dropping another graphic novel adaptation The Last Days of American Crime, as well as The Old Guard.
