Charlize Theron Leads THE OLD GUARD - First Trailer and Poster

First look at the Netflix bound action movie.

Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, The Old Guard stars Charlize Theron as the leader of a group of mercenaries who possess the substantial career advantage of immortality. It sounds like the most counter-intuitive premise for an action movie ever conceived - if our heroes can't die, where's the drama? - so it will be interesting to see how Prince-Bythewood tackles what seems like a narrative handicap.

The film also stars Kiki Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Van Veronica Ngo, with Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The Old Guard premieres on Netflix July 10th.

Check out the trailer, poster and official synopsis below.

The official synopsis reads:

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.
