‘Proud Mary’ Trailer: Taraji P. Henson Dressed To Kill As Hitwoman


Taraji P. Henson gets dressed to kill in the first trailer for Proud Mary, director Babak Najafi’s action movie with the Empire Golden Globe winner playing a hitwoman working for an organized crime family in Boston.

Set to the tune of — what else? — “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner (her solo version, sans Ike), the trailer has Henson suiting up in leather and heels, with a visit to a secret weapons closet that could make James Bond envious — all for what seems to be an action-packed and bullet-flying day of work.

Per the film’s logline, Mary’s life “is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.”

The cast for the Sony Pictures Entertainment film also includes Billy Brown, Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Danny Glover. Najafi directs from a screenplay by John Stuart Newman & Christian Swegal and Steven Antin, based on a story by Newman & Swegal. Producers are Paul Schiff and Tai Duncan.

Proud Mary hits theaters January 12. Take a look at the trailer above, and tell us what you think.
