Maggie Q Is THE PROTÉGÉ - First Trailer and Poster

The Protégé
First look at director Martin Campbell's action thriller.

If there's a female equivalent of Tom Cruise, perhaps it's Maggie Q, who shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to performing in action movies, having made her debut back in '90s Hong Kong after being discovered by Jackie Chan.

Q takes the lead role in director Martin Campbell's The Protégé as an assassin who vows revenge for the murder of her mentor (Samuel L. Jackson). Michael Keaton and Robert Patrick also star.

The Protégé is in US cinemas from August 20th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world’s most skilled contract killer. But when Moody – the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival – is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.
