I’ve been a huge Taraji P. Henson fan for years, but her latest role might be her best yet. The first Proud Mary trailer shows a side to Henson we haven’t seen since Smokin’ Aces. And there was no way you could have a Proud Mary trailer without using Tina Turner, right?
Taraji P. Henson is Mary, a hit woman working for an organized crime family in Boston, whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.
With Proud Mary and Atomic Blonde, we’re in a new era of legit kick-tail female heroines in roles we’ve typically seen going to the Liam Neesons, Jason Stathams, Clive Owens of the acting world.
This trailer is a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to seeing the full film when Proud Mary opens Jan. 12, 2018.
