WATCH: Trailer for The Protégé has the gorgeous Maggie Q kicking much ass

May 12th, 2021 by Marc Comments

A cool new trailer has dropped for The Protégé from director Casino Royale director Martin Campbell with a cracking cast including Maggie Q, Samuel L Jackson and Michael Keaton.

And, as if that’s not enough, this is from the lovely people who gave us John Wick… so, obviously, in our heads this joins Nobody as a potential addition to the lore of the Wickiverse (here). Or whatever you want to call it.

But, aside from that, this looks like a very solid bit of entertainment with Maggie Q beautifully filling the bad-ass female lead. And, of course, with Keaton and Jackson, it’s probably going to be close to unmissable.

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.

Directed by Martin Campbell 

Starring Michael Keaton, Maggie Q, and Samuel L. Jackson, with Robert Patrick

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
